Election lies

  • In speeches, official statements and interviews with the BBC and Sunday Times, Theresa May repeatedly insisted she would not call an election before 2020.
  • When she decided her own interests were more important than the country’s she U-turned and called a snap election.
  • May also lied about the reason she changed her mind, saying parliament was obstructing Brexit. This was just weeks after a big majority of MPs voted to trigger Article 50 to take us out of the EU.

Out for herself

  • Last year Theresa May campaigned for Remain, but now she pretends she is a champion of Brexit. She’ll say anything to stay in power.
  • In a speech to City bankers last year she said ‘the economic arguments are clear’ for staying in the EU.
  • She told Scotland ‘now is not the time’ for an independence referendum because it would distract from Brexit negotiations, but then called an election in order to increase her majority.

Theresa’s team should have got the sack long ago.
