BoJob government to launch spin machine to deny critical stories about no-deal Brexit

Brothers in Spin: Michael Gove (right) will launch the new Johnson government spin machine.

Boris Johnson is wasting public money on a government unit dedicated to denying news stories that Brexit will harm the UK.

His propaganda unit will be devoted to convincing us all that his “no deal” Brexit will actually do us good – no matter what information comes out between now and October 31, the date we are due to leave – and possibly beyond.

What do you think of this attempt by a government to hoodwink the people of the UK?

Boris Johnson’s government has been accused of launching a “shameful spin machine” as it emerged the Cabinet Office will establish a team to monitor reports regarding Britain’s departure from the EU.

With 80 days to go until the Brexit deadline, the rapid rebuttal unit is being created to respond to “inaccurate media reporting” and “reassure the public” the government is prepared to leave without a deal.

“Setting up a no-deal spin unit is a pointless waste of taxpayers’ money, and will do nothing to help avoid the years of chaos and uncertainty that will follow,” said Labour’s shadow Cabinet Office minister, Jon Trickett.

    Instead of using the euphemism “spin” it should be called “barefaced lies” because that’s what it is.

    Boris’s notions of ‘Truth’ are certainly subjective if not progressive, I’m not sure if King Darius would have been impressed or appalled, though Goebbels would have probably approved of the black-is-white approach! Using our money to fund lying to us is rubbing our collective faces in it.
