Liar.co.uk website redirects to Boris Johnson Wikipedia page

The Liar.co.uk site has been taken over and directs visitors to Boris Johnson’s Wikipedia page.

The site began linking to the prime minister’s page over the weekend after facing fresh allegations from partygate of breaching covid restrictions and mounting pressure to quit.

Mark Rofe, 32, from Surrey, responsible for website redirection, said: “I originally wanted to register Liar.co.uk and set up a website with all the lies our Prime Minister has told, but the domain was already taken.

“But I saw the domain was available to rent for £299 per month on the Dan.com domain platform, so I shared the idea on Twitter.

and got a few people together to split the cost and redirected him to his Wikipedia page.”

Mark, who is the founder of Christmastrees.co.uk, added: ‘I wanted to do something that makes a serious point, but in a humorous way, hopefully it gets there. I would like to lease the estate until he leaves office, which hopefully won’t be for very long now”

Angharad Planells, head of business development and culture at Radioactive, who helped finance the rental of the domain, said: “I got involved with liar.co.uk because lying to the public is one of the ‘ don’t do’ fundamentals of public relations and strategic communications.

“Transparency and openness are key to building trust with any audience, whether you are an individual entrepreneur or a FTSE100 company, and most certainly in our country’s highest civil service.

“Without trust you cannot hope to lead, and Boris Johnson has shown time and time again that he should not be trusted. When someone shows you who they are, believe them. People see you, Mr. Prime Minister.

This is not the first time a domain name has been used to mock a politician, in November 2020 the domain name Loser.com directed visitors to Donald Trump’s wikipedia page after he refused to concede defeat in the 2020 US election.
