Of course, here on the social media – where the facts are supreme – some of us have been trying hard to raise awareness that the Tories have nearly tripled the national debt.

One Conservative MP – Daniel Kawczynski – managed to shoot himself – and his party – in the foot last month when he tried to claim Labour were responsible for creating huge debt – but instead tweeted evidence that damned his own party.

And now Theresa May has hobbled her own party by giving Jeremy Corbyn the opportunity to make the same point in Prime Minister’s Questions – the most widely-reported part of the UK’s political week.

Of course the mass media will have buried this – so it’s up to us to share it with everyone we know. Please do.

At Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) on 1 March, the Labour leader exposed the con that the Conservatives borrow less than Labour.

Theresa May was repeating her usual irrelevant platitudes: “If you are going to be able to provide treatment for people with mental health conditions, you need to have the strong economy that enables us to pay for it. The one thing we know about Labour is that they would bankrupt Britain.”

But in response, Corbyn put that myth to bed: “Coming from a government that, by 2020, will have borrowed more and increased the national debt by the total borrowing of all Labour governments, that comes rich.”
