Fact checking your ass!

Channel Four are doing some excellent work on the UK election. They don’t have big budgets, but their online efforts have impact. Not least the Factchecker site. This entry takes apart an electoral claim made by the Conservatives in Poole on the cost of assylum seekers locally. We can’t promise the same level of service, but if you have anything you’d like Slugger to check, send them in!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
