Charlie Brooker's wipe 2014

As part of the BBC programme Charlie Brooker’s 2014 Wipe, British filmmaker Adam Curtis draws a comparison between destabilised perception in Russia and Britain, and looks into how this plays into the hands of those in power.  In a time when we are continually faced with conflicted messages from both the media and politicians - “is the deficit being cut, or increasing?” “How can we say the economy is going if wages are decreasing?” “why has there not been more of a scandal regarding the billions of pounds of public money received by Britain’s economic elite?”- does anything make coherent sense?  And if not, how are opposition parties supposed to logically contradict the discourse of the ruling parties? Watch from 27m 36s to 33m 42s it will turn your world upside down.
