Misleading election ads during the Super Thursday campaign

It’s my strong belief that electoral advertising should be regulated so that fact-based claims are accurate.

At the moment there is not a single rule governing what political claims UK parties can make in their adverts.

There are more rules concerning what you can say in an advert about chocolate than there are about a party’s record in office.

All major political parties have taken advantage of this lack of regulation.

Put another way, politicians know they can lie in advertising, so they do.

Reform Political Advertising have conducted a review of misleading electoral advertising during the #superthursday elections.

Some of the contents would impress Pinocchio himself. 🤥
