The UK government is spending £60 million on an advertising campaign to combat "right-wing extremism." https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/15/think-different-can-advertising-defeat-alt-right-propaganda The mascot (?) of this thing seems to be someone called "BS Man." So likely these articles have been coordinated with that.
