Re: 'Fake news'
>>The Labour party recently held a workshop teaching its MPs to lie in order to smear opponents.<<
Three thoughs crossed my mind;
Who leaked this information? ...All the best schools teach honesty... and That's what happens when safe seats (& quangos etc.) are handed to friends & the children of party members. In the egalitarian past the really clever Sh**s who could 'misinform' naturally would rise to a position of power.
Is it time for propaganda & BS phraseology spotting lessons in school? it would work well with advertising copy as well.
Assume any politician talking is lying until proven otherwise by independant fact checking.
I hold ALL politicos equal in this regard.
