HUGH GRANT has accused the Liberal Democrats of lying just days after joining the party on the general election campaign trail.
The British actor surprised voters in London’s Finchley and Golders Green constituency as he knocked doors with candidate Luciana Berger on Saturday.
The party then tweeted saying it was “so great” to see the actor campaigning for the party, adding: “Only the Lib Dems can take seats off the Tories — and together we can stop Boris and #StopBrexit.”
However Grant responded to the tweet to say the claim was “not true,” adding that he advocates tactical voting to unseat as many Conservatives as possible.
The Liberal Democrats currently sit third in the national polls, with an average rating of 13 per cent.
It is not the first time the hapless cabal has been accused of misleading claims during the campaign.
It was accused of using misleading data on leaflets to suggest they were polling ahead of other parties in certain constituencies when they were not.
One such leaflet distributed in Putney told residents Labour “can’t win here,” even though the Liberal Democrat candidate finished third behind Labour and the Tories at the 2017 election.
