Grant Curnow (left) scolds Boris Johnson out of St Ives.

We know Theresa May has been booed out of towns across the UK – now, on the day she u-turned on a major manifesto policy, Boris Johnson had to u-turn out of St Ives, in Cornwall.

He had attended the town to put his support behind local candidate Derek Thomas – but resident Grant Curnow took him to task, accusing him of lying over Brexit money pledges.

Mr Curnow said: “We have never seen that man since he was elected. He made so many promises, we have not heard from him since.”

He then chased Mr Johnson out of town, saying, “You lied to us Boris, you lied about the money.”

See for yourself:

The money, about which Mr Johnson was said to have lied, was most probably the £350 million per week, promised for the NHS on the Vote Leave ‘battle bus’ during the EU membership referendum campaign. This bus:

As we now know the Conservative Party is promising no new money at all for the NHS during the whole of the next five-year Parliamentary term – including the three years after the UK is scheduled to have left the EU, we may safely conclude that Mr Curnow was correct and the Vote Leave claim, of which Mr Johnson was a part, was untrue.

The Tory lies are stacking up.

What can you do about it?

Well, you could vote Labour on June 8. How about it?
