At The Big Issue, we know a little bit about the world of fake news, misinformation and dubious claims. Our weekly Fact/Fiction feature looks at the truth behind the headlines, tackling misleading pronouncements and telling readers what they really mean. But there’s one day of the year where the silly and the scurrilous is allowed: April Fools Day.
It could perhaps have been argued there is enough uncertainty in the world this year. But April Fools went ahead anyway so here’s your round up.
