It's been pointed out that Labour have only ever been elected when they've moved to the centre.
Are these the key policies that they have already lied about repeatedly? For example the "40 new hospitals" that is actually at most 6, the "50,000 new nurses" which actually just double counts 19,000 existing ones and the "20,000 new police" which doesn't even make up for the ones taken off the streets by the Tories in the first place?And that's before we get into the Boris' amazing Brexit deal.
They can say what they want but Boris has a track record of lying and lying and lying yet the more he lies the more people seem to adore him. It beggars belief!
In the letters page of the Daily Mail yesterday (2nd Dec) there is a lot of serious criticism of all parties on their records of cutting down trees.
But isn't this the whole problem? The Tories in particular from what I've seen (though not just them) are seeding the population with such a vast amount of misinformation due to social media that they're likely to win an election based on what they've managed to make the population assume about other parties because people are too lazy to actually pay any real attention to what they have actually done over the past 9 years. Project Fear, if you will.
