Total Politics magazine has a really interesting feature article on whether or not the law should change on political advertising. It features Guido Fawkes in the ‘yes it should change’ and Nigel Evans (Tory MP) for the ‘no it shouldn’t’.
Regular readers will be unsurprised that I side with Guido. I could add a number of others, but agree with all of his 3 guiding principles of:
“An ideological preference for freedom, the practical consideration that it would reengage the public, and that it would boost the competitiveness of the political market.”
Thanks to Katherine for sending this over.
