Having comments or tweets taken out of context is something that many politicians face today, and so they often find themselves having to defend and deny what they apparently said.
But you don’t really have a leg to stand on when the evidence is right in front of – or behind – you.

Appearing on Sophy Ridge On Sunday, International Trade Secretary and Tory MP Liam Fox interrupted the host after she read out a tweet he claims he didn’t send.
But he did send it, and here it is again:
"The United Kingdom, is one of the few countries in the European Union that does not need to bury its 20th century history" #scc16

People had a good old laugh at him, MPs included.
Oh man, have you seen that Liam Fox thing? The most politician politicianing that has ever politicianed.

Genuinely don't know how @SophyRidgeSky didn't march Liam Fox over to the screen and yell "THERE".
This might be why I'm not a presenter..

In a fantastic audition for this years Panto season Liam Fox gets the audience shouting "it's behind you" "oh no it isn't"; "oh yes it is" https://t.co/zbB3vrRLwZ
