Andrew Neil has accusing Owen Jones of being “a compulsive liar” after he claimed the former BBC journalist is a “cheerleader” for Donald Trump.
In his latest column in the Guardian, Mr Jones claimed The Spectator, chaired by Mr Neil, gave “such generous space” to the US President Donald J Trump.
However, Mr Neil has hit back claiming Mr Jones is a “compulsive liar” and cannot produce any examples of him “cheerleading for” Trump.
Mr Neil wrote on Twitter: “Owen Jones is a compulsive liar.
“He lumps me with so-called ‘cheerleaders’ for Trump.
“If he had a reverence for facts he would reproduce my regular criticism of Trump.
“But that would conflict with his distorted narrative.”
He continued: “He tries to hold me responsible for what The Spectator has written about Trump.
“Mr Jones might consult the Guardian’s Scott Trust before her opines.
“But editor + writers of the Spectator do not consult me about what to write.
“He accused them of turning on Trump after supporting him.
“He ignores the fact The Spectator has published a variety of views on Trump (unlike the Guardian).”
Mr Neil added: “He accuses them of inconsistency.
“For someone who was all over the place when it came to Jeremy Corbyn, that’s hilarious.”
