Gentrification: Renegade Inc: Russia Today

Recommended Posts

https://www.rt.com/shows/renegade-inc/387555-gentrification-alternative-socially-cleansed/

A great piece on RT at 1:30pm today regarding house prices causing gentrification. An estate agent (with a good attitude) having his profession called unethical to his face and a researcher into displacment caused by house prices stating rises in suicide, depression and drug use. Moves onto discussing Community Land Trusts and LVT. I don't think I would ever see something like this outside of RT, the BBC should hang there heads in shame.

Pryor is a buying agent not an estate agent (RT got its facts wrong....). His job is to buy property for his wealthy clients smoothly and at the best price. He has been bearish on property for years (and wrong for most of those years!). That said I like what he says and wish he was right more often.

Worth mentioning that the presenter had alleged issues with hpc's own poster 'Frizzers' Dominic Frisby

.....But by stating in the main titles that the film is ‘written and directed by Ross Ashcroft’ and publically declaring himself as the writer in all publicity, yet omitting any mention of me, except for a vague credit in the end titles – where only the most conscientious will see it –  Ross Ashcroft is making out he is the writer of the film in a way that is not consistent with the facts of how the script was created.

Is this plagiarism? You tell me.

The Four Horsemen is a film that rails against injustice and inequality and calls for economic reform. At its heart is a man who, in my opinion, is passing somebody else’s work off as his own.

Here’s that Oxford Dictionary definition again. Plagiarism is ‘the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own’.

Where exactly, Ross Ashcroft, Mr Renegade Economist, does plagiarism fit into your Brave Economic New World?

I’ll update you in a few months on this story when they try and screw me on the money …

Any views stated here are my own, and my own only. As are the words.

P.S. (May 7, 2012) After various advises – thanks to all those who approached me – on April 26 I wrote to the Ashcrofts and formally asked them to revise the credits ‘on all prints of the film, on dvds and all other modes of exhibition’. I have not yet heard back. Once proper credit is given, I will remove this post.

P.P.S.  January 2013. Still no payment. Ah, shucks.

P.P.S. Update. May 2015. The Four Horsemen has had close to 3 million hits on YouTube. No contributors have been paid. No accounts have been supplied since March 2013. There has been no explanation from producers Megan and Ross Ashcroft.

Caught the first 10 mins or so today ... Great stuff, exactly what you are never going to see from the BBC or any of the mainstream news media.

Very true, BBC reporting is so dumbed down it's not even worth watching.

I think a time will come, if it's not come already, when people will be glad to have a bit of clear blue water between themselves and Russia Today output.

Russia Today is a Kremlin propaganda site aimed at destroying the UK.

Enjoy their programming, but just remember that their idea outcome is seeing you and your family, dead.
