Something smelling fishy? Matt Hancock’s government department seems to have hijacked images of NHS staff to create fake accounts that push lies and propaganda.

How much of this are you going to accept before demanding an end to the deceptions?

Now it seems the Department of Health has created hundreds of fake Twitter accounts, claiming to belong to NHS staff, in order to broadcast support for the government.

If true, this is pure propaganda; your government lying to you about the views of NHS staff.

The scam was cracked by John O’Connell on Twitter:

While the fake account didn’t seem particularly clear on its facts…

… we discovered that the real ‘NHS Susan’ is a nurse from Greece:

It seems Mr O’Connell then discovered a further 127 fake NHS staff accounts. Here’s his Twitter thread about his findings:

The Department of Health and Social Care has responded robustly…

… but unconvincingly. Remember that the Tories changed their own publicity account’s name to “FactCheckUK” during last year’s election campaign, dishonestly impersonating a genuine fact-checking service to lie about the Labour party.

And why would anybody use a government website to check whether content is harmful, when it’s the government that is accused of creating it?

The danger is that the Tory government is undermining trust in the institutions we need to be able to trust. It is deadly dangerous – but the Tories are playing the fool.

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.
