Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And more on that subject, with examples;-

Vox Political - Mike Sivier - Voters in marginal constituencies targeted by dirty Tory `dark' adverts

The Conservatives have found another way to cheat national election spending limits - on Facebook, it seems.

They have been using Facebook's advertising system, which demands that users `bid' for the limited number of slots available, to drown out others and force `dark' adverts, filled with lies, on readers.

There is no regulation of this behaviour.

Delyn, where the Tories' dirty trick was discovered, is a marginal constituency held by Labour's David Hanson - but he will lose it if there is a swing of just 3.9 per cent to the Conservatives.

And the Tories are feeding Delyn Facebook users lies about a nonexistent `Death Tax' (fabricated in an Express article), and about Labour increasing taxes for everybody (in fact, 95 per cent of earners will not be affected; only the top five per cent would have to pay more).
