Social housing slapdown for tweeting Tory twits

Disinformation comes in many forms, in these days of social media and instant (fake) news.

For example – this tweet from Conservative Central HQ Press Office:

This is the part of the Conservative Party that handles all official press notifications, so one would expect them to have known the following:

This is accurate: The coalition scrapped the longstanding system of funding new social rented housing in 2011.

In fact. Sadiq Khan has brought back funding for homes at social rent levels.

They really don’t. But they hope that, being the Tory Party Press Office, their lies will convince enough people.

Remember that: Tories lie.

    A lie is often more powerful than the truth if it gets into the public’s mind first. Misinformation is pernicious and is the language of the propaganda SPADS employed by No10.
