Can you believe this Tory is still pushing the ’40 new hospitals’ lie?

Last Updated: October 29, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Conservative MP Lucy Frazer tried to push the old Boris Johnson lie that 40 new hospitals are being built, during BBC Question Time on Thursday (October 27).

Maximilien Robespierre discusses it here:

The issue is that, if it had been a straight interview between Frazer and a BBC journalist, she would have got away with her lie. It was only because Julia Hartley-Brewer, of all people, called her out that she didn’t.

Standards of broadcast journalism have clearly fallen very low for that to be allowed to happen.

And her attitude when caught out was that people shouldn’t get angry about the fact that she lied!

Of course we should be angry. She is an elected politician; we expect her to be truthful with us.

Hopefully she’ll lose her Parliamentary seat at the next election but This Writer won’t be holding his breath waiting for that to happen. People vote for the party they support and/or the leader they like, rather than the individual drone who’s actually up to take their local seat.

It’s a shame. If we all put a little more thought into what our votes support, Westminster could be a very different place.
