Bungling Burgon Inflates Protest Numbers Tenfold

Labour’s Richard Burgon was questioned on Guido’s story about the disturbing placards at yesterday’s Corbynista rally on the Sunday Politics. In response Burgon claimed there were 150,000 people at the demo. The Mirror says 10,000 attended, the Times says 10,000 attended, the BBC reports 15,000 attended. Definitely not 150,000. Straight out of the Trump playbook of making up crowd numbers. Or was Diane doing the counting?
