Tories Sheryll Murray and Nadine Dorries – and the Daily Mail – say left-wingers and Labour supporters did this. Isn’t it far more likely that it was done by people of ANY or NO political persuasion, who were simply horrified by the behaviour of these despicable creatures?

There seems to be a concentrated campaign of disinformation against left-wing campaigners at the moment, headed by newsrags like the Daily Mail and Tory mouthpieces like ‘Mad Nad’ Dorries.

They are claiming that members of Momentum and other supporters of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour are responsible for any number of abusive attacks on Conservative candidates in the last general election – without evidence, of course.

A Mail article on June 30 quoted South East Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray as follows: “I’ve had swastikas carved into posters, social media posts like ‘burn the witch’ and ‘stab the C’, people putting Labour Party posters on my home, photographing them and pushing them through my letterbox. Someone even urinated on my office door.”

The Mail‘s Dominic Sandbrook went on to claim, “The fact is the overwhelming majority of the abuse, bullying and intimidation comes from the Left.”

Does it?

Let’s have a look at some bullying and intimidation by Ms Murray, shall we?

Here’s a video that went viral on Twitter during the general election campaign. It is of Ms Murray causing outrage at a hustings by saying she welcomes food banks in her constituency. When audience members reacted angrily, pointing out that they should not be necessary, she indicates her contempt for her critics: “Let’s ignore these.” These what?

When audience members again – rightly – objected to her behaviour, Ms Murray had the nerve to say she wasn’t prepared to be subjected to their behaviour! The clip ends with her suggesting that organisers call the police to remove the voters she had angered.

See for yourself:

Is it any wonder people – of all political persuasions or none – have been expressing their feelings towards her?

That’s not good enough for the Tories and their evil-minded little supporters, though. They’ve seen an opportunity to smear their opponents, so that’s what they’re doing.

Here’s Ms Dorries:

And here’s the only answer to her that any of us need, courtesy of Angry Yorkshireman Tom Clark:

This Writer reckons the Tories are on the back foot, and this is a desperate attempt to regain credibility with the public.

It must not succeed.

So, if you see a Tory trying to defame the Left in this manner, don’t let it pass; challenge it.

We’ll see how long their feigned indignance lasts when they’re made to produce evidence – or shut up.
