Abstract

The Conservative Party made clear that they would run an anti-Corbyn campaign, attempting to contrast the alleged weaknesses of the leader of the Labour Party with Theresa May’s supposedly superior leadership. An analysis of Tories’ Facebook advertising by LSE researchers Damian Tambini, Nick Anstead and João Carlos Magalhães suggests that this negative campaign included specific instances of demonstrably false or misleading information.
