Water Fib! Tory Non-Swimmer Claimed to Be Surfer Boy

Local Cornwall residents were surprised to read over the weekend that Tory MP Scott Mann cannot swim and had to be saved by his colleague Johnny Mercer after getting in trouble in the water. Mann wrote on HuffPo: “I am an adult and I am unable to swim” as he recalled his ordeal. All the more curious considering how just two months ago Mann was pictured in the Bude and Stratton Post “surfing in his spare time”, posing in a wet suit as he campaigned to scrap a “surf tax”. The picture above was taken by his parliamentary researcher just in time for the press release attacking the tax. Presumably Mann wasn’t keen to be snapped in the water. Post-truth politics is making waves…
