Paul Nutall appears to have attended the same charm lessons as Donald Trump; as well as sitting in on Ethics classes run by Iain Duncan-Smith; and seminars on truth held by Geoffrey Archer.
The UKIP leader has been sussed out by Liverpool’s Radio City News for lying about his personal involvement in the Hillsborough Disaster. Earlier in the week the Guardian newspaper stated that Nuttall had repudiated accusations that he had lied about being present at the Hillsborough Disaster.
Yet there is evidence of his using this human tragedy to further his political career.
There is also an accusation of electoral fraud hanging over Nuttall’s head. Apparently, he was not living at the address at the time he signed the nomination forms for the Stoke Central by-election, thus giving false information.
Nuttall’s personal website claims he played professionally for Tranmere Rovers. Tranmere Rovers’ version of events has Nuttall as a member of its youth side. Again, not Nuttall’s fault; no, this one’s down to the UKIP press officer.
His LinkedIn page, up to a couple of months ago, implied that he had a PhD. This time he pleads ignorance of how that information found its way onto the website.
Does the country need another lying fantasist in Parliament? Isn’t the House of Commons flush with human detritus with the likes of May, Boris Johnson, Duncan-Smith, Hammond, Green and Danczuk floating around.
