Pretty sure this **** isn't allowed?

Search for "Labour party" - you'll see the following ad: https://i.imgur.com/j7zFHca.png

Surely that **** can't be legal? Literally baiting clicks by pretending to be Labour.....

FYI takes you here: https://www.labourmanifesto.co.uk/ - can't believe Labour didn't snag that domain first, poor show.

Probably too wrapped up in trying to take GoDaddy into public ownership so they missed the boat.

The conservatives also changed their twitter handle to "factcheckUK" to mislead people into believing their twitter account is an independent fact checking service while posting (frequently non-factual, biased, and flat out incorrect) political material 🙃

Cummings is such a sneaky sod.

It was hilarious seeing all the fake Tory accounts sprouting on Twitter and so on during the last few days, people claiming to be the PM, etc. We're still waiting for Twitter to ban the Tory Party from their system for faking.

Twitter are all bark and no bite, they had to change their hate speech policy so they could let Trump use the platform. Only famous people are allowed use hate speech.

It's disgusting when you see just how unapolegetic every single Conservative MP is when journalists bring this up.

Complete lack of common decency.

Northern Ireland torture was commonplace for UK police in anti-IRA operations.

I take your point, but last time I checked, the UN doesn't let fakers take over their platforms, or countries falsely claim to be other countries at UN conferences, etc.

The IRA certainly had the torturing people, often to death, down to a t.
They wrote the book on it.
