    It's just as well we don't run anything else in the same nonsensical manner as we do the media where they insist on having a second opinion on everything regardless of whether they add any value. Imagine a hospital insisting on offering you the advice of someone who had no medical experience just to provide balance on the advice that you were receiving. We've millions of scientists around the world saying climate change is real but Piers Morgan or some other muppet with no qualifications on the matter is brought on to offer up an alternative view based on rhetoric and hearsay.

    I'll give that a watch. Have enjoyed his LBC vids for a couple of years now. Yes he must boil the p1ss of hard liners but let's be honest they deserve it. Very interesting one where a guy broke down on the phone asking what had he done to his country after voting leave. Racked with guilt. Rather than be smug about it O'Brien consoled and reassured him he wasn't the only one with common sense to be reeled in by the lies and propaganda.

    He's constantly saying contempt for the con men not for the conned but that call you put up shows a common mentality where people get more upset with him for showing them they've been lied to rather than those who've lied to them.

    Then this morning James Cleverley went on two programmes giving two different versions of why the video was doctored. Obviously got a call from HQ telling him how badly things were going so he ditched his appearance with Kay Burley and pushed up his interview with a Tory friendly radio host. Unfortunately for him Kay Burley empty chaired him which has gone viral. The Lib Dems have also been caught a couple of times already with shady polling charts and leaflets and their claim that the most important thing to them is stopping Brexit is falling asunder because they're attacking Labour more than the Tories and everybody knows that the only realistic way a referendum happens is if Labour win. Labours honesty(relative to other politicians) has hampered them for a while now but it could be about to become a big positive. Some of the MSM are upping their game when it comes to calling out lies and now a steady honest message from Labour could see them close the gap in the polls. Theres not much more the Tory press can throw at Corbyn that will change anybody's view and hes proven hes a very good campaigner. He needs to stay consistent with his message now though which let's be honest,probably isn't a given.

    Brexiteers just lie and make things up & they couldn't care less ... mainly because the people they are lying to couldn't care less either. They want to be lied to - its suits their xenophobic tendencies. They want to be told that emigrants from EU are the problem, that they will make the best deal ever on trade, that Johnny Foreigner is a cheating diver and Harry Kane is a clever clogs & makes the best of it. Jesus wept.

    I'm just amazed at how willing so many of the British public are to accept endless bullsh1t.
