Labour leadership challenger Rebecca Long-Bailey has skewered the hard-right “news” website Guido Fawkes for publishing an entirely fake story about her husband.
Guido’s crack team of reporters claimed that Long-Bailey, who claims to hail from a modest background, is married to Steve Bailey – a multi-millionaire director at the chemical company Barrettine Holdings and the heir to a £20m+ family fortune.
However, Long-Bailey has politely pointed out to Guido that their story is actually complete bullsh*t, and that she’s married to an entirely different Steve Bailey.
In response, Guido have rapidly deleted the story without an apology or an acknowledgement on their website. “Journalism” at its finest.
