Can you spot a Tory election lie?Take the Lie Detector
The Conservative Party is running anti-Labour ads about terrorism sentences, just days after the London Bridge attack.
It has been revealed that the Tories are running Facebook adverts pillorying the Labour Party, despite widespread calls for politicians to avoid exploiting the London Bridge terror attack for their own gain.
Posting on Twitter yesterday evening, Who Targets Me revealed that the Tories are running a new Facebook advert, attacking Labour’s policy.
The advert features a video of Jeremy Corbyn, speaking on Sky News, during which he says that people convicted of terrorism offences should not necessarily serve their full term: it depends on the individual circumstances.
The advert accuses the Labour leader of wanting “weaker sentences for terrorists”.
The father of Jack Merritt, one of the victims of the London Bridge attack, has posted on social media to say that, “My son, Jack, who was killed in this attack, would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily.”
It’s clear the Tories have their own agenda.
