Boris Johnson outside Number 10

The FFS Show episode 12: Boris Johnson falsehoods, Peter Geoghegan on Covid-19

Ferret Fact Service | Scotland's impartial fact check project GERS

Episode 12 of the FFS Show podcast is a Boris Johnson fact-check special.

After Dawn Butler MP was ejected from the House of Commons for reading a list of alleged falsehoods by the PM, we dived into her statement to see whether her allegations were true.

We also concluded our interview with new openDemocracy editor-in-chief Peter Geoghegan. He talked us through the links between Covid-19 misinformation and those behind similar tactics during the Brexit referendum and beyond.
