Manipulating the media: Tom Watson used to talk about fake news – now, it seems, he produces it.

The sheer muddle-headed stupidity of this is astounding.

The Huffington Post has reported the results of a survey of his Twitter followers by Tom Watson as if it represents the views of Labour Party members.

Tom Watson is a hugely divisive man whose pronouncements against current Labour policy have alienated him from huge numbers of the party membership.

Anyone who has actually criticised him on this behaviour tends to be blocked from viewing/responding to his Twitter account.

So the following headline – and the article to which it links – should be read with extreme caution, it seems to me.

Others have been more forthright in their condemnation:

Exactly. It isn’t valid. It’s fake news.

And Tom Watson has to go, before he tries to do any more damage.
