Tory liar refuses to admit her lie time and time again

Tory lies alert: yes, it’s a cartoon of David Cameron, so now you know that we’ve been catching Tories lying for at least eight years.

Here’s Clare Coutinho, Energy Secretary and Net Zero Secretary, and liar.

Apparently in her Conservative Propaganda Carnival – I mean, Party Conference – speech, Ms Coutinho told an extremely off-colour joke about the Labour Party planning to tax meat.

There is no Labour Party plan to impose a tax on meat, although I wouldn’t put it past Keir Starmer to have been writing the idea down on the back of an envelope if he heard about it.

Sophy Ridge from Sky News tackled her about it and she absolutely refused to give an inch:

That frozen expression on Coutinho’s face when she realises what she’s being asked is priceless. It’s a real rabbit-in-the-headlights moment.

And she can’t deny that she made it up.

Are the Lib Dems the biggest liars of the election so far?

Jo Swinson (left): she seems to be trying to steal Boris Johnson’s crown as the biggest liar in Parliament. But then, that is why her party’s nickname is the Fib Dems.

Take a look at this:

It’s a piece of electioneering by the Liberal Democrats that – on the face of it – presents a false impression of who are the main players in the North East Somerset constituency, running up to the general election in December.

The trick is in the small print. Congratulations if you can read it; I’ve got my specs on and the print is too small for me. Also – who is going to bother reading the small print when they haven’t been told they need to?

The gaff was well and truly blown by Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday. Take a look at the video in Dawn Foster’s tweet – and note Helen Pender’s follow-up that the Lib Dems have done the same elsewhere.

Ms Swinson’s attempted defence is an embarrassment. “It’s labelled on there what the question is that it relates to so anyone looking at it can read what the question is”? Only if you’ve got a magnifying glass and obsessive compulsive disorder!

Still, what can you expect from the Liberal Democrats? Even when they’re directly quoting election results, they can’t resist using their infamous block graphs to mislead people.

In Brecon and Radnorshire, they came out with their usual “two-horse race” rubbish with a block graph – that completely misrepresented the differences between the parties’ standings. You can see the difference when their graph is juxtaposed with an accurate representation:

In the by-election on August 1, the Liberal Democrat candidate only won because the Brexit Party split the Conservative candidate’s vote – and the Tory was a convicted criminal.

Sophy Ridge seems to have a knack for showing Jo Swinson up. Take a look at the following clip, in which the Lib Dem leader is forced to acknowledge evidence showing that, in the Coalition government, she supported more Tory policies than some genuine Conservative MPs:

Note also that she only ever seems to criticise Labour.

Perhaps it’s right that she is next to Boris Johnson in the image at the top of this article. She tries to mislead the public as much as he does, and she certainly supports Tory policies.

And that’s the hidden message – that Liberal Democrats will support the Conservatives, if there’s a hung Parliament and they end up with the balance of power.

In other words: Vote Liberal Democrat – get Tory.
