Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Keir Starmer

“I make sure that everyone is honest about what’s going on”

PM Rishi Sunak, ITV News interview

Facts

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak claimed in an ITV News interview that he makes “sure that everyone is honest about what’s going on.”

This website contains approaching 1,000 instances of Conservative Party politicians spreading misinformation and false narratives. Sadly many of these instances have occurred since Rishi Sunak became PM. 

Further, in February 2024 Sunak ignored Plaid Cymru Westminster Leader Liz Saville Roberts’s request at Prime Minister’s questions for him to commit to “honest campaigning” and to commit to Full Fact’s standards for political honesty

Verdict

Rishi Sunak’s claim that he makes sure “that everyone is honest about what’s going on” is a cynical lie which brings discredit on him personally, the Conservative Party and British politics. 

We emailed Rishi Sunak’s office and Downing Street offering them the chance to respond. The email was received, but no reply.
