#Fakenews? I’ve got some fake news for you!

Dear Sir,

I was interested to read of Mrs Rounce’s support [Letters 7 March] of Mr Norman Lamb’s cheap populist jibes directed at the newly democratically elected President of the USA.  This made me wonder what Mr Trump would make of the Liberal Democrat claims made in my division by their prospective candidate for the county council elections.

His two best claims to date are that his campaigning on the Astley school crossing was the sole reason which persuaded the County Council to reverse its decision on closure of this and 37 other school crossings throughout Norfolk and that he alone has found a solution to the poor mobile phone signal problem in North Norfolk.  If this is not “fake news” what exactly is it?

Yours faithfully,

David Ramsbotham
UKIP County Councillor
