One of many sources for this

It seems this happened last night WHILE the tv clash between Johnson and Corby was LIVE on tv:


"The Conservative party was accused of duping the public last night after rebranding one of its official Twitter accounts as “factcheckUK” during the first big televised debate of the election.

The campaign stunt turned the @CCHQPress account — which is controlled by the Tory media team and verified by Twitter — into what appeared to be an independent fact-checking service covering the ITV clash between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn.

With a purple banner and check-mark logo, the branding played down links to the Tory party, bar a reference to “from CCHQ” in small print. The look made it hard to distinguish from other fact-checking services developed by independent organisations and media groups such as the BBC, the Guardian and Channel 4.


Come on! This is pathetic!

Why do you sound surprised ?

The Tories are well know for their " Dirty Tricks "

A couple of weeks ago they " doctored " a TV interview by Labours Keir Starmer.




More to come from The Tories. Watch this space.

What happened to that Pommy spirit.

You know, the one they had in WW2 during the blitz?

Their great grandparents are turning in their graves.

Albeit unethical - if this is what it takes to stop people voting for Labour I'm all for it.

I've never been a Conservative but we need to be realistic. voting in Labour is a vote against the democracy of this country.

Conservatives - be as dirty as you need to be. Just follow through the referendum result and move on.
