As @SheronWilkie points out, we still have the same social media problem from 2016.

Unfortunately this the tip of the iceberg.


History, #CorruptTory and


Today. Right Now.
Believe it or not.
If you have a complaint about a political advert, even if a crime has been committed.
THIS⏬ (Pic)
will be the response from the Industry Regulator

It's not their fault.

Tories have put advertising above the law.
How on earth?

Exactly the same trick as #Brexit.

Tories promised one thing. And once in control, all the promises vanished.

In late 90s/00s the Regulator complained their investigations took months. But campaigns took weeks.

They were getting the blame for political lies.
I'm summarising - there are 2 regulators, not 1, it's not relevant.

Most of the frustration had been kicked up in a 1999 ⏬ Report into Political funding.

Regardless by 2003 sufficient steam was building up to "deregulate politics"

Let's continue…
In 2003/4 the main parties came together to agree a solution.

Meetings were secret. We know lab and con disagreed but beyond that, we have only the outcomes⏬.

Mostly reasonable. Except no 4, "Free from normal honesty and truthfulness tests".


They legalised #lies.
Not good, but limited.
TV controlled
Press? Editorial was the lie machine.
Outdoor - tactical, despite Saatchi.

Except. No one had predicted the next big thing.


It could have been solved in the 2010 digital advertising review.

But Mr #CorruptTory was back in power.
And the rest of the story is history. You all remember this right?⏬

Mr #CorruptTory resisted every attempt to regulate Digitial Advertising.

What did Mr Cummings announce today?

"A primarily DIGITAL campaign".

And how much did he suffer due to 2016…
Oh. He was rewarded.
What now?
Please weigh in...

But first. We brits invented counter-propaganda in WW2:

1. Tell people. Share this, share examples. Forewarned is...

2. Track, monitor, know.

3. Modify and throw it back at them. Genius work by @bloggerheads in 2017⏬

Will you be back Tim? 🤞
