Channel 4 News: Fatima Manji: Revealed; how Leave.EU faked migrant footage

I struggle to find something to say that makes any sense of what Leave.EU have been able to get away with. I keep coming back to the idea that the logic of what has been done cannot be unpicked. You can do as Ms Manji has done, and dismantle the lie. Prove the footage has been faked. That the story being told is a fiction. It makes no difference. The perpetrators deny the accusation by throwing back another accusation, belittling the question with the gall of a playground bully. They know that you can expose their lie. Offer as much proof as you like. You can never shake the resolve of the faithful. These are not confrontations between two logics, it’s a war between empiricism and faith, and faith will always win.
