The nasty party is back. The ConservativeHome's new poster spoof website exchanges humour for bile.
Confused? They seem to be, exchanging humour with bile, mocking anyone on benefits as being scroungers and suggesting that the Labour government is on the side of burglars. You can take a look for yourself at the new site, ‘I’ve never voted Labour before‘.
But even a spoof of a spoof can be spoofed.
And we wouldn’t be Left Foot Forward without a good stat so (hat-tip @Jessica_Asato):
Benefit fraud: 0.6% of expenditure, including error = c£2.7bn. Tax havens = c£18.5bn: http://bit.ly/apTU9A <why I don’t like @mylabourposter
As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.
We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.
