Information Policy of “The British Gazette” During the General Strike in 1926
Publication type
The author of this article analyses the contents of the paper “The British Gazette”, which the British government issued during the General Strike May 4—12 1926. A. Prokopov examines general information policy of the paper, investigates the attitude of the government towards the strike, its participants and blacklegs. Winston Churchill, who was the editor-in-chief of “The British Gazette”, tried to undermine the unity of the strikers, to intimidate them, to depict them as enemies of Great Britain, as if they had violated all foundations of British society. The author comes to the conclusion that the government, using “The British Gazette”, was waging real informational war against the strikers.
