Shadow Home Secretary and MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington Diane Abbott has tweeted what at first appears to be a shocking image, a western aircraft carrying out low-level bombing runs in a heavily populated city. The problem? It's a poorly photoshopped image published in a blog years ago.
Recently we were alerted to a rather surprising event, an MP on the Defence Select Committee itself repeating the assertion that HMS Queen Elizabeth and her sister ship HMS Prince of Wales, will not have any aircraft.
A Member of Parliament has incorrectly claimed that there are no Royal Navy vessels in Scottish waters, despite the presence of frigates, submarines, support vessels, patrol vessels and of course, a major Royal Navy base on the Clyde.
HMS Queen Elizabeth, the only aircraft carrier in the world to have her name subject to claims of conspiracy and collusion against the people of Scotland.
Statements made by the government explicitly claim that the Royal Navy is growing, but are those claims accurate? Yes and no.
Despite multiple corrections, explanations and pointers, some politicians in Scotland are astonishingly stoking outrage over ships that the Clyde can't build, not being built by the Clyde.
The Ministry of Defence is to put the order for Royal Fleet Auxiliary support ships out to international tender at the end of this month, this has been met by accusations that the government have somehow "betrayed" the Clyde yards.
The First Minister of Scotland has inexplicably stated that the international tendering for auxiliary vessel contracts is a betrayal for the Clyde, despite the yards having no interest in them, having never been promised them and the fact the vessels couldn't physically fit on the slipway.
Recent articles from a variety of sources have claimed that Britain is buying the Iron Dome missile defence system from Israel to protect the Falklands, it's not.
There's a lot of misunderstanding and myth circulating about how many ships the shipyards on the Clyde are expecting to build, but what's the truth?
