It's called Media Distraction. Their economy is fecked, like a lot of countries.... they resent the whole being conquered by Britain and being part of the Empire. They also resent British Museums holding Greek treasures and stuff we won't give back.
So, what do they do? They find a game, try and attach right-wing, racist, xenophobic and general bad social attributes.... the fact it's a UK company will just please some people as it means possible drop in sales for GW. It is defamatory, and GW should pursue legal action IMO.
