It's a simple thing, nothing special or out of the ordinary expected here.

In the aftermath of "Fake News", "Brexit Lies", "Project Fear", I believe it should be made a disciplinary or even a criminal offence for elected politicians and public representatives to lie to the public or promote information that is not factually correct. It must be the case that approved, assessed and fact based sources are clearly identified and recorded as sources before statements are made to the public.
