‘Fake moment that never happened’: Piers Morgan brands Tory chairman ‘shameless’ over doctored election video TV presenter Piers Morgan has savaged Conservative party chairman James Cleverly following his refusal to accept an election video posted by his party on social media attacking Labour’s Keir Starmer was doctored.
During an interview with Morgan and his co-host Susanna Reid on ITV’s Good Morning Britain (GMB), Cleverly attempted to address the current furor in relation to a published via the Tories’ official social media accounts.
The video contains an interview with Starmer on GMB from Tuesday. Morgan asks the shadow Brexit secretary why he thought Brussels would give Labour a good Brexit deal if they thought there was a risk his party would campaign against it in a second referendum.
Rather than include Starmer’s reply that came straight after, the doctored video, which has had close to a million views, inserted several seconds of film showing the Labour politician looking speechless.
Cleverly attempted to justify the clear edit by insisting that they “needed to shorten the video.” His refusal to admit that his Tory party doctored the material sparked outrage from Morgan, who branded his denial “staggering.”
The Conservative Party website, the official one, posted a fake video, that had a fake moment that never happened, on TV.
Cleverly had to answer questions from the media on a number of controversial issues on Wednesday morning involving a number of Tories.
Posh Etonian Jacob Rees-Mogg is in hot water after suggesting on Monday that victims and survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire lacked “common sense.” His Tory colleague Andrew Bridgen appeared to compound his party’s perceived insensitivity on the issue by suggesting Rees-Mogg was cleverer than those Grenfell residents that got trapped in the fire.
