Victor Southern, Tory Leader of Swanley Town Council

Accused Tory caught editing Wikipedia

The Tory councillor accused of “outright discrimination” has been caught editing the Swanley Wikipedia page to make claims about the local Labour party, glorify Tory victories and make comments on the ongoing situation.

Under the Politics subheading, he added:

The local Labour party falsely alleged in December 2016 that acts of racism had taken place inside of the town council.”

This is clearly an attempt to rewrite the books to bias what is mostly a trustable source of information against the Labour party and councillor Gaire, who made the allegations.

He then removed a notice on the article warning of uncited information to make his changes look more authentic and trustworthy.

He then wrote under the Facilities subheading:

In 2016, it was falsely alleged by the local Labour party that ‘The Olympic’ was shutting down.”

This, like his last edit, targeted the Labour party.

One thought on “Accused Tory caught editing Wikipedia

  1. I most certainly did not add the remark which said “In 2016, it was falsely alleged by the local Labour party that ‘The Olympic’ was shutting down.” I have no idea who did or how it is attributed to me.

    I did make the other entry but well before December 7th.

    I have answered the allegation of racial discrimination fully elsewhere but I repeat that I categorically deny the allegation.
