    So properly like so many other I don’t trust 99.9% of politicians as far as I can throw them!
    I been looking for some unbiased, fact biased website to double check what they are saying.

    Below is what I have found, is there any others I missed that are good?

    LOL, wonder how long before that came up!
    What they did I think was underhanded and prop to ask the above.

    I rely on STW; independent, unbiased and not tainted by personal opinions.

    Every time I see Boris Johnson I automatically think Fact Hunt.

    I always reckon the Financial Times is neutral and largely fact based.

    https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/filtered-search/ seems to agree with my assessment.

    https://fullfact.org/ is my go to fact checker but it does seem (to me) to occasionally stray beyond pure fact checking and into wider context which often starts to look to me like opinon.
