Collins’ Cyber-Crusade Stumbles

Poor old Damian Collins’ attempts to become the British Julian Assange have hit another stumbling block as the Government accepted just 3 out of his committee’s 42 recommendations on how to deal with the “democratic crisis” of “disinformation and ‘fake news'” on social media. Sadly for Collins, such innovative proposals as taxing social media companies to fund quangos or including “satire and parody” within the definition of ‘fake news’ won’t be becoming hitting the statute books any time soon. Nor would the Government be drawn into commenting on ongoing investigations into the EU referendum.

Collins was left complaining that the Government’s response was “disappointing and a missed opportunity.” A missed opportunity for Collins to secure more publicity for his vapid vendetta against Brexiteers…

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.”
