    Default Facebook 'fact-checkers' could be biased themselves, admits Nick Clegg

    He used to be my MP, I voted for the scumbag!


    • Former Deputy PM made admission to EU officials in November during talks about how tech giant was tackling misinformation flooding its site
    • Facebook announced fact-checking measures in 2016 amid claims its failure to remove misleading content helped to swing that year's US Presidential election in favour of Donald Trump
    • The measures, which allow users to alert Facebook to content they believed to be fake, was applauded by many - but critics decried the intervention, warning Facebook would rely on Left-wing fact-checkers
    • In recent weeks huge controversy has surrounded its decision to censor stories claiming Covid-19 could have been man-made and leaked from a Wuhan lab

    Live and learn, Tommy.

    Facebook vice chairman Nick Clegg admitted that the company’s fact-checkers – employed to remove so-called “fake news” from its social media platforms – could be biased and pursue their own political agendas.

    It was a tactical vote on my part, to keep out Labour.

    "Liberal DEMOCRAT" should have been your first clue, Tom.

    It worked the first time to keep Corbyn out and Cameron otherwise there would have been no referendum on Brexit.

    It's good you're willing to admit that you're a moron
    Why Biden? Because Fuck You that's why. Barack Obama has a Grammy, an Emmy, a Nobel Prize, 2 terms as President and a Twitter account.

    Donald Trump has 2 impeachments.

    I still don't understand why the Labour Party in Britain elected a "balls out" Marxist like Corbyn as leader of the parliamentary Labour Party. I mean, he had so much bad political baggage going all the way back the close links he had with the provo's in the early days of "The Troubles", then Yassar Arafat's terrorist crews (like "Black September") and so on. I lived in England for 25 years, and one thing I know about most of them is that they are totally averse to any kind of political extremism ( on the Right or the Left). And Corbyn was absolutely a left-wing extremist . Personally, I think he was a bit mentally unstable ?)


    Anyway, as I say , I am still bamboozled as to how the British Labour Party allowed Corbyn to lead them into an election ??

    as long as you keep internalizing the fact that you are queer you will be the vile disgusting hate filled ass hole that you are. You need to come out and experience the world of butt fucking and live your better life.

    Simple really that imbecile Ed Milliband changed the rules to allow Labour Party members to choose the Leader rather than just the Parliamentary Party. You could join for three pounds hence all the loonys immediately jumped on board and voted Corbyn in.

    I joined the Tory Party in 1994 when I was living in England because I was impressed with John Major, he was a One - Nation Conservative, and my own political views were/are very similar to those of "Citizen John's" Also, I thought he was a great orator (people always scoff when I say this, but, IMO> he was both eloquent and lethal in the Commons and during PMQs, etc. On the issue of Jeremy Corbyn, he was never a contender in the race against Boris and I think every sane Englishman knew that, so really he didn't pose any kind of serious threat to England. The British PM who did cause a lot of damage was the slippery, grinning, "Phony Tony" Blair and his devious cronies like arch spin-doctor and homosexual, Peter Mandelson (Ooops - do beg pardon - Lord Mandelson of "Furry Cat"). Do you remember how "The Sun" newspaper nick-named him "Mandy" . Blair, Mandelson and Co. were more like the modern-day lying/crooked/unscrupulous Democrat politicians, than ever they were bone fide British Labour MPs, who may have been wrong about big policy issues , but at least "played straight."
