Can you spot a Tory election lie?Take the Lie Detector
New Brexit Party MP candidate Ken Davies once called for the death penalty to be reinstated for Jeremy Corbyn.
Davies, who was today announced as the party’s candidate for South Derbyshire, commented on a 2016 video showing Jeremy Corbyn had managed to get a seat on a Virgin train, after the Labour leader had earlier posted a video claiming he was forced to sit on the floor.
In response, Davies said:
At best, this is a tasteless and distinctly un-funny joke; at worst, it’s a threat against the Leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition.
And Davies isn’t the only Brexit Party candidate to have posted inflammatory remarks online. We’ve reported that three of Farage’s candidates have shared Islamophobia on Facebook – two of them comparing Muslims to Nazis. Meanwhile, we have also revealed that another candidate had spread conspiracy theories about a Muslim member of Congress.
All things considered, a pretty diabolical candidate launch from the Brexit Party.
