Fake reviews aren't technically legal right?

I don't think they're illegal.
Of course, they could just be genuine reviews from people who read his book and thought it was shit.

Just had a look at some of the reviews and the positive ones come across as being fake more than the negative ones do.

He's not going to like what people are saying about his Boris Johnson voice on Spitting Image either.

He should probably give writing a better book a try.

Remember when "someone" asked their fans to flood Amazon with positive reviews for their lacklustre radio-adaptation sitcom c.2014?

It's all that genuine centrists can muster.

I was thinking that.... it's the "gentle harrumph!" pose. "I'm fed up, but living in relative luxury, whatsthatallabouteh?"

Many businesses who hire online reputation management companies to help them repair damage ‎caused by negative online reviews, often choose not to ask too many questions about how the ‎miraculous improvement in their company’s online review ranking had occurred. They do ‎however need to be aware that in the UK, writing fake online reviews (or astroturfing, as this ‎practice is commonly referred to) is illegal.

May be wrong. Amazon probably not arsed anyway and I want Matt Forde to be ruined.

He seems to have deleted that tweet now, which is a shame as I'd loved to have seen the responses.

I saw a few of them and they weren't exactly from #TeamForde.

He was the political advisor to the second elected mayor in Stoke. A man that was absolutely mired in ACCUSATIONS of corruption and bribe taking.

I'd be interested to hear if his book included the advice he offered then. But not so interested to pay to find out.

It looks like he says a bit about his time in Stoke:

Not true. Writing fake positive reviews for your own product is illegal. Writing fake negative views is not illegal, but you risk civil legal action for defamation, libel, etc (although even that only applies to statements of fact, not opinion.)

It would be impressive for anyone to bring such surgical precision to either comedy or political analysis. Forde's ability to bring it to both - in spades - is truly remarkable. A sparkling jewel of a book, James O'Brien

"A sparkling jewel" reminds me of that Adam and Joe bit where it's actually just a dog tard covered in those shiny green flies
