Jacob Rees-Mogg and the Tories are keeping quiet about the identity of the Rees-Mogg supporter who attacked a woman at a speech yesterday evening. Today, Tory chairman Brandon Lewis has been trying to provoke a response to the incident that ignores the assault and libels Momentum.
This tactic from Lewis included sending a message to media and political personalities to try to coerce them into following his dishonest narrative.
The lies in his message are:
- Brandon Lewis claimed the protesters were from Momentum. He knows that to be a false statement because the anarchist group to whom the protesters are affiliated have already claimed ownership of the protest.
- Brandon Lewis claimed the protesters were violent. He knows that to be a false statement because all video and photographic evidence of the incident show the violence of a Rees-Mogg supporter and none from the protesters.
- Brandon Lewis deliberately failed to mention the violence against a woman by one of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s supporters, a thug who is known to Rees-Mogg.
Tory chairman Brandon Lewis has, unsurprisingly, no interest in factual accuracy. He has been appointed to the role of chairman because he has a knack for persistent, relentless lies. That is his only skill.
