Tory MP deletes tweet claiming Tories “implemented minimum wage”

12 Jul

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tory Party!)

Tory MP Guy Opperman has deleted this tweet (from politwoops):

opperman minimum wage

It seems even Guy thought this was one claim too many.

Because of course the Tory party didn’t implement the minimum wage – which of course was introduced by a Labour government in 1999 – and which of course was opposed by the Tory Party at every step of its implementation.

Which makes Guy’s statement one of those – oh what is that technical word politicians like to use amongst themselves when they spin the facts so far from the truth even they can’t remember what’s true or false any more?

Oh yes, that’s right, I remember now.

A lie.
