David Cameron has joined the chorus criticising US President Donald Trump for his tirades against the media, saying his attacks on "fake news" was undermining democracy.  In his first public speech since stepping down after his failed attempt to win a vote to stay in the European Union last year, the former prime minister said Mr Trump was corrupting society and diverting attention from real abuses through his attacks on outlets like CNN and the BBC.  “President Trump: ‘fake news’ is not broadcasters criticising you, it's Russian bots and trolls targeting your democracy, pumping out untrue stories day after day, night after night,” Mr Cameron said at an anti-corruption lecture hosted by Transparency International and law firm Clifford Chance in London.  “When you misappropriate the term fake news, you are deflecting attention from real abuses. Ignoring what’s happening on social media is facilitating a form of corruption that is undermining democracy.” Mr Cameron championed the fight against corruption and pushed through legislation strengthening the hand of law enforcement officials.

In the years since, 10 of the 22 members of that Fifa executive committee were indicted or punished.” Speaking tonight at @TransparencyUK#TILecture17 - Britain was first G20 country to set up open register of beneficial ownership. We must keep promoting transparency and fighting the battle against corruption.— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) December 13, 2017 He also said the EU had not done enough to fight Russia's attempts to interfere with Europe's democracies. “To be honest this is one area where, far from being too quick to act, the EU has been far too slow,” he added. “Barack Obama used to challenge European leaders over how we seemed to ignore or even tolerate Russian subversion of some eastern European business, energy, media or even political interests. He was bang on target.”
