  • Mar.22.2018: Lib Dems embarrassed as EU leaders deny Brexit statement. The LibDems said that 8 prime ministers, including the Netherlands’ Mark Rutte and Belgium’s Charles Michel, had met Cable before the EU summit and agreed an extraordinary joint statement backing the LibDem policy that the British public should be given the chance to vote on whatever deal Theresa May reaches with the EU. However, shortly after the statement was released, the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe group (ALDE) of liberal parties in Europe said: "No statement has been agreed upon or released".

  • Mar.20.2018: Fake LibDem newspaper Lies to Richmond and Twickenham Voters. Guido has previously reported on how the LibDems produce fake newspapers to hookwink voters – well, this is the most egregious example yet. Residents in Richmond and Twickenham have had a copy of the “Richmond & Twickenham Gazette” through their doors today. It has the appearance of a real newspaper, carrying multiple news reports attacking the government and splashing on a “story” criticising the Tory-controlled Richmond council. Let’s have a look at some of the “reporters” writing for the Gazette… Piers Allen is described as the paper’s “Social correspondent”, Piers Allen is not a journalist. He is the co-chair of Twickenham & Richmond LibDems and a local LibDem councillor. Its “Europe correspondent”, Alicia Bridges-Westcott, is not a Europe correspondent. She is the campaign manager for Twickenham & Richmond LibDems. A report by “Health correspondent” Simon Drage runs a quote telling readers that “heartless Tory cuts” have caused an “NHS in crisis”. Simon Drage is not a health correspondent. He is the Seat Strategy & Intelligence Officer at LibDem HQ. Finally we have a story from Jonathan Cardy, apparently the Gazette’s “Finance correspondent”, Jonathan Cardy is not a finance correspondent. He is a LibDem councillor in Richmond. The only admission that this newspaper is a pack of lies comes in this imprint at the bottom, which confirms it is published by Twickenham & Richmond LibDems. A fake newspaper with fake news and fake journalists – the LibDems are infamous for being the dirtiest campaigners but this is a new low… Guido Fawkes.
  • Jan.24.2018: If you think the Tories treat disabled people badly, look what the Lib Dems have done in Cornwall. A Liberal Democrat-led council has sparked a major row after it came to light that it's "taxing" disabled people to park. But the charge, of about £3,300 per person, is not for using a public car park. It's for disabled people to park outside their own homes. The Canary, Steve Topple
