By Giuseppe de Santis-Nationalists have always known that journalists working for British newspapers are bunch of arrogant Marxists who think they have the right to impose their nasty agenda to ordinary people and are ready to abuse their power to attack anyone who dare to criticise them.

However as more and more people are refusing to spend money on papers writing lies and political propaganda some of those journalists are working on undemocratic solutions in order to save their fat salaries.

One of them is The Guardian executive investigations editor David Leigh who has suggested that a £2 a month broadband levy should be imposed on all households to save newspapers from the effect of falling print circulations.

According to Mr Leigh anyone who wants to get a broadband connection should pay £2 more every month in order to create a fund that will be distributed to newspapers in proportion to their online readership in the UK.

This levy, collected from the likes of BT, Virgin, Sky and Talk Talk etc, would raise more than £500m so that The Telegraph group, the Associated Newspapers' stable and Guardian Media Group would each receive around 20 per cent of the cash, or £100m a year, while The Independent stable of papers would receive around £40m a year.
Smaller titles like The Scotsman and the Yorkshire Post would receive a “potentially life-supporting transfusion of £8m and £4m respectively”, according to Leigh.

The Sun (still highly profitable) would collect an annual £50m while loss-making Times titles would receive “relatively little” because they were behind a pay wall.

This proposal is more akin to a protection racket given that it would force broadband subscribers to pay for something they don't want and don't need but however upsetting is hardly surprising, after all we all know that Marxists have a habit of getting rich and fat by sucking the blood of ordinary workers.

So far some journalist bloggers dismissed this idea as unfair and unworkable.
Their main criticism is that it would help more newspapers who have popular websites and are still profitable whereas it would do nothing to help local papers whose websites attract a small amount of visitors.

Probably this proposal will be ignored but nationalists must stay alert as media tycoons and useless journalists will do their best to save their fat profits.
