Leaflet attributes comments about LibDem relevance to Sky News and Guardian – when they were party leader’s own words
LibDem representative Christine Jardine floundered on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme this morning when she was confronted with an outrageous piece of fake news put out by her party.
Derbyshire asked Jardine about a campaign leaflet containing quotes – attributed to Sky News and The Guardian about the LibDems’ supposed electoral relevance – but which were in fact party leader Jo Swinson’s own comments.
Confronted with the indefensible, Jardine could scarcely have floundered more completely:
On what seems an almost daily basis, the LibDems are being caught out in blatant lies as well as shameless distortion of facts in their desperation to reverse their polling slide – which looks catastrophic even at the outset of the campaign.
No wonder they’re so often called ‘Yellow Tories’ and ‘FibDems’.
