Same energy cap proposal. Different proposers. Same media, opposite reaction


In the 2015 General Election campaign, Ed Miliband’s Labour proposed a cap on consumer energy prices. In the 2017 General Election campaign, Theresa May’s Tory party is so morally bankrupt and bereft of ideas that they can’t think of a policy and have decided to recycle the Labour energy cap.

The media, of course, are almost entirely in the pocket of the Tories (and vice versa), so the reaction to the same policy is completely reversed:

The utter bankruptcy of much of the media estate and of the Tories laid bare in a single, clear example.

Bear this in mind whenever you read a headline. They’re not reporting the news – they’re telling you what they want you to think, to protect their interests and not yours.
