Tory HQ (CCHQ) has clearly been very busy churning out fake news about Labour’s manifesto. Too busy to put any thought into costing their manifesto – which is vague in everything except its most dangerous parts – or even to give rudimentary training to its main spokesman in how not to look an idiot under a bit of basic probing.
So busy, in fact, that they’ve been accidentally letting the truth slip out in some of their messaging. Freudian slip – or a ‘CONservative confession’, if you prefer.
Such as this tweet, which is dripping with so much unconscious irony that it should be wearing a wetsuit:
Yes, that’s right. The Tories – in power for the last seven years – just admitted that life under their government is very hard. And, effectively, that they’ve been keeping that fact obscured from public knowledge.
In essence, the Tories tweeted an advert for a Labour government – especially a Labour government with a breathtakingly transformative and fully-costed plan to make the UK a better place for the vast majority of people to live in.
Of course, it speaks volumes about the Conservatives that they only tell the truth by accident. But it’s a vital truth nonetheless. Best make sure everyone knows about it.
