Prepare yourself for loads of Brexit fibs in the election campaign

Truth and lies about Brexit

In Northern Ireland last week, Boris reached new heights of brazen bullsh*t.

This person was the run-away favourite to win. So it should not have been a surprise to you when Jo Swinson CBE was announced as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats. Within her first day in office, she said ten words which have propelled her into the most powerful individual in the country. Yet few people appear to have noticed it.
