You can fool some of the people some of the time...

As previously reported, George Osborne and other national Tories say that to understand how a Conservative Government might behave you need to look at councils like Tory H&F.

When Channel 4 News reported this recently, H&F Tories gave two examples of why this was the case: the Westfield shopping centre and the new Shepherds Bush library.

All very strange because both of those achievements were negotiated and started by the last Labour council. The Tories obviously couldn't think of anything that they'd actually done themselves.

Unfortunately Channel 4 News was hoodwinked into broadcasting those examples as proof of Tory efficiency and commitment to value. You can fool some of the people...
