One to fund this hopeless case and another to fund her “investigative journalism” – which produced this bollocks. She now has to pay £62,000 of costs on account this morning as a down payment, expect that figure to go higher. She has avoided the humiliation of appearing in court this morning by submitting in writing an amended defence which “… removes the Truth Defence and the Limitation Defence” Which is legalese for “it was all complete cock ‘n bull” .  She has not stopped milking the crowdfunding mugs yet, Carole has learnt there are plenty

Boris’s New Wonk to Lockdown-Sceptic MPs: Tell the Truth, Not What You Hope is True

Boris’s recent pick for his new No. 10 policy board, Neil O’Brien, will have seriously ruffled some backbench Tory feathers this morning with comments he made on  TimesRadio,  imploring Covid lockdown-sceptic colleagues like Steve Baker to “ try and present what is true rather than what you hope is true,”  given this is a “ matter of life and death”.  Neil has been tweeting charts and statistics to counter Covid-disinformation and wishful thinking… The provocative comments came in response to accusations from Stig Abel that some of his fellow MPs are pushing false information and talking “ nonsense” – arguments with which O’Brien said  “I basically agree”.  There’ll be a good three dozen Tory MPs riled by this blunt intervention from an MP Boris trusts enough to send out on the only morning media round the day of Rishi’s spending review… * This article was originally published by Guido Fawkes
