Theresa May lied: Firm claiming Tories had no Brexit strategy WAS working for her

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has been caught out in a direct lie to the people of the UK.

She told us all that accountancy firm Deloitte, which wrote a leaked memo claiming the government had no plan for Brexit, was “not working for government”.

It was. She knew it. She lied.

Are we supposed to put up with this?

Or should we sling her out?

The accountancy firm behind the leaked memo that claimed the government had no Brexit strategy had been working in Whitehall helping to set up David Davis’s Brexit department.

Deloitte, along with seven other consultancy firms, worked on a short-term contract within the Department for Exiting the EU. In the wake of the critical memo being leaked, Theresa May dismissed it as “produced by an individual from an external accountancy firm, who was not working for government”.

Deloitte, however, had been hired along with other consultancy firms – on a pro-bono basis, or for a nominal fee of £1 – to help set up DExEU after it was created last summer.

    Lies, Lies and yet more lies. They don’t even bother to hide their filthy lies and corruption any more.

    Well as a consultancy is not directly working for the government , and who exactly released the claim, was he/she working for deloitte in the consultancy group if not May was not actually being untruthful.

    We need a General Election NOW! Not in a couple of years time when it will all be much too late. I’ve not trusted members of parliament for many years. My opinion of ALL of them is that they are lying hypocrites – every last one of them. Thank you and goodbye Maywoman, Blojob, Gove and Fartage.
