More Idiocy from Torbay

The Real Fake News Altering Our Laws

BY NIGEL BEAN Newspapers breathed a sigh of relief after the fake news announcement suggesting the biggest problem to UK democracy is those damn Russians and their manipulation of social media outlets. Well no it’s not. The biggest problem for UK democracy is the acquisition of local newspaper titles by Newsquest and the left-wing Trinity Mirror group.
