Yesterday Evolve Politics followed up an under-reported story in the Daily Mail regarding Tory MP Lucy Allan who doctored an email from one of her constituents to make it appear like a death threat.

Evolve Politics have contacted Lucy Allan directly via email and have, as yet, received no response. We have also contacted various major news and media outlets asking them if they are going to take up the story. We have received no response to any of our messages.

The bias of our mainstream media is becoming undeniable, and it is simply abhorrent. The Daily Mail published their original article but did not publicise it anywhere.

If this was a Labour MP faking a death threat from a constituent, or someone close to Jeremy Corbyn, the media would be all over it. Just look what happened to Andrew Fisher.

But, because it’s a Tory MP, they won’t touch it with a 10 foot barge pole. They don’t want to offend their paymasters now do they.

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.
