If the Party is in control, it believes it can change reality.
Perhaps there is no more glaring example in recent times of this, than computerization, control of information and the economy.
The truly shocking details of the Post Office scandal has all of these ingredients. And far more.
Hundreds of sub postmasters were accused and prosecuted when the fault lay with a faulty computer system. They dared to say that the computer system was useless and was throwing up more problems than they could solve. For questioning the digital narrative they lost their jobs and went to prison. Only now is the scale of the disgusting treatment they received coming to light.These sub-postmasters lives have been ruined.
The NHS scandal where the criminals in Westminster have flushed away hundreds of billons on useless computer systems is the other ugly sister of this Post Office scandal.
