Conservative Home has a post by Time Montgomerie on the effect the question of immigration, based on a YouGov poll, could make to the outcome of the general election, the headline of which is:
When are politicians going to 'square' with the public? Were David Cameron to make such a promise - and we all know from the recent past that his promises aren't worth the paper they are printed on - the ability to reduce the number of immigrants would only affect those from outside the European Union wishing to enter Britain. And how many of the electorate know this? Very few one would contend, because the MSM don't point this out in their supposed fair publications, neither do the BBC, ITV or Channel Four.
What is deceitful on the part of the Conservative Party is to put out this information without the qualification that is explained in the preceding paragraph. To be fair, this is not a deceit of which just the Conservative Party are guilty. It is, unfortunately, also true that deceit is practised when considering the energy policies that are proposed by all three main parties as these are dictated by Britain's membership of the European Union.
On a personal level I am incandescent with rage at the manipulation of facts, on any given subject, that political parties now practise. It is odd that politicians are so quick to punish organisations that mis-represent their wares, yet who is there to punish political partes for, in effect, mis-representing their policies?
