Tories pretend their press office is a ‘fact check’ organisation. Public ridicule is hilarious

The Conservative Party seems to be getting desperate.

Its press office resorted to the dirty trick of pretending to be a ‘fact check’ organisation during the ITV leaders’ debate – presumably so it could tweet a (false) claim that Boris Johnson won the confrontation.

Well, that didn’t work!

Not only did people take extreme offence at the pretense…

… but they also decided to have their own laugh at the Tories’ expense.

Take a look at some of these examples:

Way to go, Tories. Not only did your man mess up his big TV appearance…

But you’ve also ensured that nobody will believe another word to come out of your publicity machine.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    i watched that debate. as did,no doubt many others. all i saw was that clown trying his damndest to stop jeremy corbyn saying anything. he couldnt shut up when told to by the woman hosting the debate and kept trying to get Corbyn to tell him whether he was leave or remain…….. sorry but thats a personal preferance no matter what your job is. if you wish to keep it out of the public eye its no different to saying who or which party you voted for, its on your own conscience if you want it to be so. you dont HAVE to tell anyone any of that. he wasted a lot of time. that could have been devoted to answering other questions and good on Jeremy for keeping his cool.and his own council on private matters. had i been in his place i would have wanted to slap the mans face…. but then……. wantibng to and doing it wouldnt help anyone.

    Surely this fraudulent action should be reported to the Electoral Commission as electoral fraud? Another added to the Tory rap sheet, especially as further criminal cases are already under consideration.
