The Telegraph Reveals Actual Ministry of Truth in UK Government

An article by The Telegraph published on 2 June 2023 reveals a “secretive government unit” that worked with social media platforms to control any discussion that contradicted the lamestream narrative.

It’s not exactly news and it’s not as if the article supplies great detail with corresponding documented evidence. But still, for The Telegraph to print something like this at least confirms one’s suspicions.

The Counter-Disinformation Unit (CDU) was set up by ministers to tackle supposed domestic “threats”, and was used to target those critical of lockdown and questioning the mass vaccination of children.

And not surprisingly, an AI firm was used. The BBC too, apparently, was also involved.

The BBC also took part in secretive meetings of a government policy forum to address the so-called disinformation.

This is also not surprising but it is a little disappointing since the BBC in the old days was at least a little or superficially anti-establishment.

But wait, that’s not all.

As well as the CDU, the Government operated a Rapid Response Unit (RRU) in the Cabinet Office that hunted online for content it considered disinformation. The CDU, which is still operating, was embedded in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The department has “trusted flagger” status at social media companies including Facebook and Twitter, which means that requests for content to be removed are fast-tracked for consideration.

It’s interesting that the UK government considers censoring people part of “culture” and a “sport”. But anyway, the department having privileged status at Facebook and Twitter is consistent to what was reported in the Twitter Files.

The RRU was closed in July 2022 but the CDU is still up and running. It was started in 2019, apparently focusing “on the European elections before turning to focus on the pandemic”.

Well, that’s convenient. There weren’t elections in Europe before 2019?
