#BecauseOfTories

On the last day of 2017, two new terms entered This Writer’s lexicon. The first was the hashtag #BecauseOfTories, which Conservatives introduced into Twitter to boost their failed government’s public image. The second is the term “optics”, which appears to mean “the way in which an event or course of action (predominantly political) is perceived by the public”.

Clearly the first is an attempt to affect the way the public is affected by the second – and of course it has backfired massively because nobody is going to be fooled by a silly line of blind loyalty when the evidence of Tory disasters is all around us.

For example:

I like Tom Pride’s response to this:

All of the above turned up on my Twitter feed, only over the last few days.

To see more, go to Twitter yourself and look up #BecauseOfTories.

And send this article and a link to the Twitter hashtag to someone who needs to learn the facts. You know who they are.
