77th Brigade

General Sir Nick Carter, during the UK government’s daily coronavirus briefing, on the twenty second of April 2020, confirmed that 77th Brigade are working with the Home Office Rapid Response Unit “Helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation”

That’s one way of putting it. Another way is to say “CENSORSHIP,” trolling social media platforms, posting denials wherever anyone posts comments exposing some aspect of the truth that is uncomfortable for the authorities. 

Don’t be mis-led by the ‘Brigade’ bit: these are not regular British soldiers. 

Wikipedia describes their activities:  The Brigade uses social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as psyop techniques to influence populations and behaviour. David Miller said that it is “involved in manipulation of the media including using fake online profiles”

In fact their comments – usually denials regarding some expose’ of policy or theory are easy to spot: the comments never contain any profanity, are short and to the point – and never provide any factual back up – simply a terse denial,  designed to appear as though the commentor is speaking from first hand knowledge.
