Conservative Campaign HQ's Twitter factchecking ploy is straight off Putin's playbook

Responding to Conservatives rebranding their Twitter account as "factcheckUK" during tonight's ITV leaders' debate, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:

"This is straight out of Donald Trump or Putin’s playbook. Not content with excluding the voice of Remain from this debate, the Tories are now resorting to deliberately misleading the public.

"People know they can't trust a word that Boris Johnson or the Conservatives say. The country deserves better. Only the Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit on day one and build a brighter future."
