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.

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
