One-trick Tories: If at first you don’t smear Jeremy Corbyn…

Jacob Rees-Mogg in Parliament. Careful where you point that finger, Jake!

It seems the Conservatives are try, try and trying again to lie convingly about the Labour leader.

Ben Bradley’s attempt failed so dramatically, his apology is – at the time of writing – the most re-tweeted post on Twitter in 2018 so far, having been forwarded more than 50,000 times.

Yesterday evening it was Jacob Rees-Mogg’s turn. On Channel 4 News, he dutifully told the nation that Mr Corbyn had voted against the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace after the so-called “Troubles” that had disturbed the UK for nearly 30 years.

As you can imagine, the luminaries of Twitter had pre-sharpened their knives for this one:

I wonder how long it will be before Mr Rees-Mogg hears from Mr Corbyn’s representatives?

    Jacob Rees Mogg is most immoral MPs in the Commons and completely shameless hypocrite and represent everything I hate about Tories. Not just that constant line over tax evasion is fine for the rich and how the lowest paid workers are better off with Conservatives in power! He claims now that Jeremy Corbyn voted against the Good Friday agreement when he actually voted in favour of the 1998 GFA which has brought peace to Northern Ireland fior 20 years. He know wants to throw all that away for the sake of a Hard Brexit with no free trade deal with the EU or in a customs union. A reckless gamble with our jobs and economy that Tory Brexiteers are pushing Theresa May into, but one which doesn’t have the support of many MPs in Parliament.

      Very nice, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Labour’s anti-terrorism laws were draconian restrictions on liberty that could not be justified.
