And they have the cheek to call Brexiteers liars!

From dodgy bar charts to fishy food facts to fake Leave voters, here are some of the worst Remainer fake news offences so far in this election campaign...


Remainer fake news is rampant in this election

Labour, the Lib Dems and the ChUKers have all been caught spreading misinformation.

SPIKED
8th November 2019



The General Election campaign has barely got going and the pro-Remain parties have already been caught spreading obvious misinformation.

From dodgy bar charts to fishy food facts to fake Leave voters, here are some of the worst offences so far:

Anna Soubry’s fake Brexiteer

Anna Soubry retained the pro-Leave seat of Broxtowe as a Conservative in 2017. Since then she has joined the anti-Brexit Independent Group for Change (aka Change UK). In her doomed campaign to retain her seat in this election, Soubry has produced a video featuring ‘Leave voter’ Graham Heal. Apparently, having come to his senses over Brexit, Heal has now decided to back the Brexit-wrecking Soubry. The only snag is that Heal was never a Brexiteer in the first place.

As Guido Fawkes reports, not only did Heal campaign for Remain in 2016, he also stood as a council candidate for the pro-Remain Liberal Democrats in 2017. One wonders if he will even be voting for Soubry’s party of the nought per cent.

Bollocks to bar charts

The Lib Dems have a long and noble tradition of producing ‘creative’ bar charts for election leaflets. ‘Only Lib Dems can win here’ has been appearing on leaflets and posters in nearly every seat for some years now. But in this election campaign, the fakery has reached new heights.

A Lib Dem leaflet in York Outer claims the campaign there is a two-horse race between the Tories and the Lib Dems, despite Labour coming second at the last election. The Tories beat the third-place Lib Dems by over 23,000 votes last time around, but the leaflet implies that there is just a few percentage points between the two parties.

Some of these bar charts are the result of some seriously dodgy polling. As Sky News’ Sophy Ridge pointed out to Jo Swinson last weekend, a leaflet in Jacob Rees-Mogg’s North East Somerset seat used a poll that asked voters to imagine what the result might be in a two-horse race between the Lib Dems and the Tories. So the results are hardly representative of people’s actual voting intentions. Again, in the last election, the Lib Dems trailed both the Tories and Labour in North East Somerset.

Fake food facts and NHS scaremongering

The Labour Party has focused its campaign relentlessly on the prospects of the Tories cutting a post-Brexit trade deal with the US, and the supposedly dystopian impact this would have on the UK.

Jeremy Corbyn has said a ‘Trump-deal Brexit’ would mean Brits finding rat hairs in paprika and maggots in orange juice. Apparently, this is what happens in America all the time. Thankfully, it just isn’t true.

Labour has also been telling tall tales about what would happen to the NHS under a post-Brexit UK-US trade deal. A new election ad shows Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg standing in front of a bus bearing the slogan: ‘We’ll send Trump £500million a week. Let’s fund US drug firms, not our NHS.’ As Channel 4’s FactCheck site makes clear, ‘there’s no evidence that this is the case’.

The nonsense from these parties has been coming thick and fast – and the election campaign isn’t even a week old. We all need to be vigilant in the face of this Remainer fake news.

The Trump-Russia collusion hall of shame

The news that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government” has left a lot of people in Washington with a lot of explaining to do.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opin...6b5168-5173-11e9-a3f7-78b7525a8d5f_story.html

All nine Republican members of the committee signed a letter calling for Mr Schiff’s “immediate resignation”. They said he had promoted a “demonstrably false narrative” by continuing to investigate the president’s ties to Russia.

Oh, good. Well, that's that then.


What? You think the article is all lies?

Are North Americans regularly drinking orange juice with maggots in it as a result of not being in the EU?


I think the article is typical right wing BS trying to stir up trouble, yes.


Again, I found no sign of fake news on either side of things.


Sorry Blackie; give it a few days, I'm sure there'll be fake news a plenty on both sides to write home about.


(Also, why would we be in the EU? We're not part of Europe.)

So the Remainers are right and North Americans regularly drink orange juice with maggots in it?

Well there have been serious proposals over the years for Canada to join the EU.

Would you be in favour of Canada joining the EU?
