Fake Tory Promises
We all know the Tories are great at making promises but terrible at making them happen. But under Boris they can't event get their promises right! They're packed with spin and lies.
This Thread goes through the biggest fake promises from their 2019 conference..
Fake Promise (1) "We'll build 40 new hospitals"
- It's just money for 6 "reconfigurations" not new hospitals with money to "plan" 36 hospitals in "the future"
- Not one is a mental health trust
- Hospitals already have a £6 billion backlog of repairs
Fake Promise (2) "We've cut debt as we promised"
- The Tories came into power in 2010, the graph tells you the rest.
- They inherited public sector debt of around 1 Trillion in 2010. That debt has now RISEN to 1.79 Trillion, about a 70% increase.

And according to the TV News, it’s all the fault of social media NOT the hate speech and othering of Muslims we’ve seen from leading politicians in the UK, the US, across Europe and Australia nor anything to do with the mainstream media themselves...
If we look race hate outrages like the various pogroms against Jews in Europe culminating in the Holocaust, the lynchings of black people in the US and the racist attacks in the UK since the 1960s, the common thread ISN’T social media but..

#ToryIslamophobia update – there have been a number of major developments today but for those not following closely, I have collated them to demonstrate the scale of the issue.
We had front pages in the Guardian and Independent referring to the scale of the issue after Baroness Warsi said the Conservative Party had an institutional problem with Islamophobia, before the Today programme and Politics Live covering the issue.
One of the cases highlighted earlier this week, which was covered on @Channel4News yesterday was that of former Tory council leader Mr Bowles who RTed a message hailing Tommy Robinson. It was confirmed that he was suspended today.…
