WATCH: Humiliated Tory MP hangs up during live radio interview after being exposed as a brazen liar [VIDEO]

A humiliated pro-Brexit Conservative Party MP decided to hang up the phone during a live radio interview after being confronted over an outrageously false claim made in a recent tweet.

In a tweet posted on Saturday, the hard-Brexit-backing Tory MP, Daniel Kawczynski, attempted to shame the ‘ungrateful‘ European Union over the UK’s involvement in the Second World War, claiming that:

“Britain helped to liberate half of Europe. She mortgaged herself up to eye balls in process. No Marshall Plan for us only for Germany. We gave up war reparations in 1990. We put £370 billion into EU since we joined. Watch the way ungrateful EU treats us now. We will remember.”

With Brexit negotiations having recently entered a virtual stalemate, Kawczynski’s tweet was clearly designed to try and big up Britain’s ability to go it alone. However, the Tory MP’s tweet contained an astonishingly reality-reversing claim.

Kawczynski claimed that there was “No Marshall Plan” for Britain – a scheme financed by the USA to rebuild Western Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War.

However, not only did Britain receive financial assistance from the American scheme, it was actually the largest recipient on money.

This incredible inaccuracy was picked up by TalkRadio host Alexis Conran, and the Tory MP responsible for the tweet was asked whether he would like to “apologise for misleading his Twitter followers” during a live radio show on Sunday.

However, rather than apologise – or even attempt to correct himself – the Shrewsbury Tory MP, shockingly, simply hung up the phone.

Mr Kawczynski has yet to delete his blatantly false tweet.
