“Time to halt the smears spin and threats,” Iain Duncan Smith declares in the Daily Mail today, thundering at the EU ‘Remain’ campaign for scaremongering.
The Remain campaign’s case seems almost wholly based on what they describe as the nightmare of leaving. This case has in whole or in part become characterised by spin, smears and threats. …
In the last fortnight we have had a series of highly questionable dossiers – threatening almost biblical consequences if we dare to consider a future outside of the European Union.
Regardless of where you stand on the European Union, it’s pretty rich of IDS to complain about “spin, smears and threats”.
Let’s remind ourselves a little of Smith’s own history of employing the same tactics.
3) Then, IDS tried to do a cover-up over claimant deaths.
4) Iain Duncan Smith even lied on his own CV
6) This blog once caught him lying twice in single week
Have we missed any out?
Whatever you think of the referendum, does the biggest liar in Parliament really have a right to complain about scaremongering?
