MSM misreporting Onasanya case – only one charge, not two

The ‘MSM’ (mainstream media) have been reporting that Peterborough Labour MP Fiona Onasanya faced two counts of perverting the course of justice in relation to disputed driving penalty points. In fact, only one charge was filed, as confirmed by Cambridgeshire police: The first hearing of the case takes place from 2pm today. Shoddy MSM reporting that […]

Mail fake news exposed again – Corbyn wasn’t there on date wreath laid for ‘Munich terrorists’

Last weekend was a Corbyn smear-fest at the Daily Mail, with accusations made as ridiculous as that Corby attended the wedding of someone who allegedly – he has denied it – went on to do something four years later. But the Mail’s big splash was the claimed ‘scoop’ – even though the allegation was also made […]

Mail’s disgrace: front-page Gaza Corbyn attack is fiction

The Daily Mail’s front page for tomorrow is a fiction, as the rag stoops to such depths in its desperation to attack Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn that it features an almost full-page misrepresentation of the deaths of forty-seven people in order to smear him: The Mail’s headline claims the picture is of Corbyn laying a […]

BBC forced to correct Douma gas story after SKWAWKBOX exposes fake news

Last night the BBC published outrageous fake news when it claimed – both on its website and in its broadcast coverage – that the OPCW ‘chemical weapons watchdog’ had confirmed, in its ‘fact-finding mission’ report, that chlorine gas had been used to attack civilians in the Syrian town of Douma. The government, supported by right-wing […]

Video: BBC News joins fake news scandal over OPCW’s Douma chlorine report

As the SKWAWKBOX reported not long ago, the BBC News website published outright fake news on Friday evening when it reported that the OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) ‘fact-finding mission’ to the Syrian town of Douma had concluded that a chlorine gas attack had been perpetrated on civilians in the city. The […]

Cleverly makes an *rse of himself with #LabourLive tweet. Don’t worry, we fixed it for him

The ridiculous James Cleverly appears to be the Tories’ go-to eejit when they need someone to tweet absolute nonsense or to defend the indefensible. The ironically-named Tory MP has, for example, publicly defended his foot-in-mouth colleague Ben Bradley over Bradley’s vile comments about sterilising the poor and did so again when Bradley congratulated a Tory […]

Video: BBC stokes Labour division by presenting years-old information as new

Theresa May’s government faces serious challenges this week as it tries to defeat amendments to its Brexit legislation – in particular Labour’s amendments to give MPs a ‘meaningful vote’ on any eventual Brexit deal and to retain access to the customs union. To maximise the chances of the motions succeeding, Labour MPs need to unite […]

FCO: Johnson will not delete Babchenko murder tweet – even though he’s not dead

On Wednesday, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson caused considerable embarrassment to the nation and himself by a premature tweet blaming Russia for the murder of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko. Not only had Babchenko not been murdered by the Russians, he was very much alive – and turned up a few hours after Johnson’s tweet at a […]

Video: Johnson embarrasses again – or is Russia just not very good at assassination?

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has inflicted a series of embarrassments on himself and on this country – as well as being caught lying about that the toxin in the Salisbury poisoning incident having been positively identified as Russian in origin. Now he has committed another huge gaffe, by lamenting the murder of a Russian journalist, […]

‘Murray going nowhere’ from Corbyn’s team

Right-wing trash sites have been reporting that Unite’s Andrew Murray may ‘walk out’ of Jeremy Corbyn’s team, with ‘rumours’ of lurid quotes about key ‘LOTO’ figure Seumas Milne. It’s not true. Senior Labour sources have told the SKWAWKBOX that Murray has been unwell for a few weeks and hasn’t been able to participate, but that […]
