“One of the best pieces of political insight [Chris Grayling] saw during the [election] campaign” – a cartoon that had been photoshopped in order to present a lie about Jeremy Corbyn’s economic policy.

How obliging of Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to move the debate on political abuse along – by showing that senior Conservatives like himself support it and condone websites that participate in it.

According to Pride’s Purge – and you can visit the site yourself to see the impeccable reasoning behind the claim – Mr Grayling has called for more “negative campaigning” against the Labour Party in general and Jeremy Corbyn in particular.

He said, in an article on the ConservativeHome website, that a cartoon which had been photoshopped in order to attack Jeremy Corbyn was “one of the best pieces of political insight I saw during the campaign”.

Never mind the fact that the cartoon was presenting a lie; Mr Corbyn’s policy was absolutely not to go throwing money around, but who needs the facts when you’ve got an election to fight – right, Chris?

Mr Grayling also seems not to mind that the site on which he found the photoshopped version of the cartoon – and there’s only one – also engages in the worst kind of political abuse, calling Jeremy Corbyn a “c*nt”.

Yes, the ‘C’ word.

Except in this instance, that description may best be used to describe Chris Grayling.
