Brandon Lewis: If you can say whatever you like and expect to be believed in a post-truth world, he’s living evidence that we’re living in it.

If there’s one thing Conservatives do well, it’s standing their ground – especially in the face of undeniable evidence.

Consider Brandon Lewis, the Tory chairman who tore up his own ‘respect’ pledge  –

– by supporting Rosemary Carroll, newly re-elected councillor for Pendle, who compared people of Asian origin with dogs.

Mr Lewis told Sky‘s Sophy Ridge: “This was a situation that occurred last year, actually, in June last year. Her position has been from the very beginning that she accidentally posted something she wanted to delete. She was suspended by the party at that point – for three months.”

So she has been a Conservative councillor again for eight months? That is not what we have heard! And the claim about the post itself is handled very well by David Lammy:

That it is.
