‪It’s been all over social media for days now, and despite absolutely nobody falling for it, the mainstream media just keep on pushing it.

Yes, the Tories’ claims that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn somehow backtracked on a ‘pledge’ to abolish historic student debt still haven’t died down – despite being debunked over and over again.

And if you’ve noticed, on almost every single Facebook post about the trumped up Labour student debt claims, the top comment is invariably someone explaining exactly why the news story is utter garbage.

Even on traditionally anti-Labour pages such as Guido Fawkes and Sky News, the majority of the most-liked Facebook comments have been those calling out these outlets for pushing fake news.

And now, Corbyn’s ex-spokesman Matt Zarb-Cousin has just expertly explained exactly why the the Tories will be the biggest losers from this charade, rather than Labour.

In a Twitter thread spanning seven tweets, Zarb-Cousin began by attacking the Tories ulterior motives behind the entire debacle:

The ex-Corbyn aid then outlined exactly how the concerted attacks from the entire political and media establishment signal a change of tack since ex-BBC producer Robbie Gibb joined the Tories’ media team.

And in his next two tweets, the ex-Corbyn spokesman expertly analysed exactly why the fake news Tory attacks are ridiculously misguided and are very likely to backfire on Theresa May’s embattled party.

And with the final two tweets of the thread, Zarb-Cousin outlines exactly what Corbyn’s team should do to turn the tables on the Tories.

Absolutely first rate analysis from Zarb-Cousin. Corbyn’s team would do well to keep on listening to his sound advice.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
