Dog-gate: Tories Photoshopped Ex-MP into Campaign Photo

The Enfield Independent reports that Tory ex-MP David Burrowes is embroiled in a fake news row. He was photoshopped into a campaign photo along with his dog before the image was sent to a local newspaper.

The picture was used to illustrate a story in which the Tories claimed Labour had ignored residents’ concerns about a dangerous road junction. Labour have branded the scandal ‘dog-gate’ – “The Tories have exploited genuine concerns of Southgate residents to promote themselves and their failed ex-MP. Councillor Anderson is already working hard to resolve this problem. Resident safety must be taken seriously and not used as a campaign prop.” Neither David Burrowes or the dog were available for comment.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
