Theresa May accuses Russia of launching a 'fake news' war against the West

This is an interesting new development for the PM. Where on earth has it come from and what do you think its aim is?

"Theresa May accuses Putin's regime of seeking to meddle in Western elections. Prime Minister says the West must resist Russian propaganda war. She accuses Russia of using fake news websites and social media to "sow discord" in the West.
She calls on Putin to choose a "different path.""

Where has it come from? I would have thought it was obvious. The need to make people aware of Russia's attempts to destabilise democracy in the west, not just the UK. Were you not aware?

Hi

Brexit is by far the most important thing as far as the ordinary person in the UK is concerned, it will affect our standard of living and we need to get it right.

It is my view that May should keep her trap shut and concentrate on the people of the UK.

Germany has a huge Budget Surplus and does not contribute the required amount to NATO, neither do many other EU Countries.

This is a nonsense, we need to look after ourselves for a change.

Re: Theresa May accuses Russia of launching a 'fake news' war against the West

Well Ms May .. you're starting to look like a desperate woman on your way out....

Given the mess in her own Cabinet, given the less than satisfactory headway made with Brexit , given her mistakenly inspirational gamble on an early election which backfired in her face bigtime ... I suspect she's doing what all politicians do.
She's trying to divert attention away from her own shortcomings and her own problems, of which she has many.

I used to think/hope that though she clearly isn't another Maggie that under that distant seeming aloof exterior she had a cunning plan, she was a woman who kept her own counsel, had mettle, determination, was piloting the UK with a firm fist and would throw any mutineers overboard from that great ship called Britannia.

Not so it seems.
Instead I suspect she wont accept she's in a losing battle and whilst she's travelling on the downward escalator, every now and then she's making a desperate bunny hop back up a few steps trying to scrabble back to the top and stop her slide.

She's more important things to deal with than target Putin.

Shows how out of touch with us she is too, I'm pretty certain I'm not only one who has other things they feel should be a priority at this time.

Paranoid fool in my opinion trying to stir up more trouble but I don't suppose Putin will be quaking in his boots!
