The Tories think you’re stupid enough to believe there’s no link between these 3 facts. Are you?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

If there’s one thing more annoying than politicians openly pandering to big business interests at the expense of doing what’s right – it’s politicians openly pandering to big business interests at the expense of doing what’s right and thinking we’re all too stupid to notice.

Here are three facts:

  1. Lynton Crosby is the Tories’ chief election strategist.
  2. Lynton Crosby’s firm Crosby Textor is a paid lobbyist for big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and British American Tobacco.
  3. The Tories have dropped plans to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes – a policy strongly opposed by big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and British American Tobacco.

Now, got your stupid hat on? Good. Because here’s what the Tories want you to believe.

These three pieces of information are entirely unrelated. 

OK?
