    UK placed in third tier in global index of free expression

    Index on Censorship lists UK as only ‘partially' open’ in every key metric for the year 2021

    Countries including Israel, Chile, Jamaica and virtually every other western European state were all ranked ahead of the UK in the measure compiled by the advocacy group Index on Censorship.

    Hardly surprising, Brexit, Assange, banning of strikes, sleazy Tory corrupt politicians, I could go on. On the plus side onions and carrot are cheap.

    Where's the Philippines sit on this list....

    The Philippines ranks as 7th tier so still a fair bit lower than the UK

    There is a strong connection between the number seven and many religions around the globe. Lucky number 7 is even the basis for many myths and folklore. Ancient beliefs from around the world believed that the seventh son of the seventh son would be gifted with magical powers (both good and evil).

    Being a journalist is high risk in the Philippines.

    And third tier is hardly impressive for a First World country.

    However I could purchase any amount of sims or phones and not have to fill in any paperwork, so a big tick there.

    I rank Philippines as number 1. After all...... the later President said that (Obama was the Son of a who#e) And was not killed by a drone. (@Dare's more yelping out in the Philippines). Any posting on a News site or main stream media site means very, very little. It's all about reading between the lines now in this gross propaganda 101 for Sheeple that has become a habituation . IMHO

    Sticks and stones as the old saying goes.

    Doubt president Obama ever felt to upset over that one, except he's heard worse. The USA tends to only drone what are the bad guys in their eyes, unfortunately you can often get collateral damage. MSM, I'd never entirely dismiss them, but one brush stroke and of course all IMO.
