recently posted an article by Naomi Klein arguing that Trump's election
as president marked the moment when the corporations simply cut out the
politician-middleman in Washington.
George Monbiot sketches out how this direct rule by the corporations is
taking shape, using what he calls their "dark money" on either side of
international trade minister, Liam Fox, is a pivotal figure in all this -
he even founded one of the key organisations set up with this "dark
money" called Atlantic Bridge. Its aims included driving a wedge between
Britain and Europe, both as a divide-and-rule to weaken Europe and as a
way to reattach the UK more firmly to its poodle status with the US.
With Brexit, it's now full steam ahead.
