Lie-O-Meter : Cherie v Carolin

Carolin Lotter passes the Lie-O-Meter test so easily. Just check out her explanation here (the video is on the right) compared to Ms Blair’s “Honestly, guys, I hate to spoil your story, but I didn’t say it and I don’t believe it either.”

Why didn’t Bloomberg put her on air immediately instead of hiding her in a hotel room? She is genuine, not quite an ingénue, but she compares very well to the duplicitous, scheming and venal Cherie. That every talking head put up by the Labour party is willing to call Carolin a liar tells us all we need to know about them. Guido hears that there is a second source for the comment who, unlike the security officers, has not signed the Official Secrets Act.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
