Whoever said that politics is showbiz for ugly people has been proved more right than they could ever have imagined in their wildest dreams.
In its statement the tabloid said: „DailyMail.com stands by its recent story concerning Ehud Barak’s relationship with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein 100 percent.“

Tory MP Mark Francois told LBC that Theresa May must go after disastrous local elections results and the prospect of a customs union with the EU.

Overall, our findings were consistent with a disinformation paradigm.
