Likely Tory lies at 2019 party conference

Tory conference starts on Saturday (Sept. 28th) in Manchester.  Its speakers will splurge forth a torrent of lies, misdirection and confidence tricks.  Below are a few obvious lies that will be ejaculated and their respective translations and corrections.

 

LIE: “We will spend a lot of money on education.”

TRUTH

  • Some already assigned funds will be re-assigned and declared as new funds

  • New costs for users of the NHS will spring up everywhere

 

LIE: “We will fund nursing with a grant for extra training in order to increase the number of nurses.”

TRUTH: Said grant is a tiny fraction of the nursing bursaries removed by the Tories that led to a huge drop in the number of people training to be a nurse.

 

LIE: “We will build forty new hospitals.”

TRUTH

  • Six hospitals will have some refurbishment and the costs will be met from existing budget
