As we reported earlier in the week, Twitter was up in arms following Channel 4’s investigation into Conservative overspending during the 2015 election campaign. On Tuesday alone there were more than 100,000 tweets using the hashtag #ToryElectionFraud, and the term was trending at number 1 for almost 12 hours.

Despite this monumental public discussion regarding possible criminal investigation into Tory officials – investigations which could result in by-elections being forced in 24 swing constituencies – the BBC deemed the story simply not newsworthy.

In Tuesday’s article, we concluded that the reason for this lack of reporting was the BBC’s ridiculously obvious bias towards the current Conservative government, and with crucial elections coming up, they would much prefer to keep this potentially massive political scandal hushed.

And lo and behold, with elections now out of the way, and with voters unable to change their decisions, Laura Kuennsburg, fresh from her unequivocally anti-Labour coverage of the election results, has now decided to tweet about this huge Channel4 ‘scoop’.

Twitter was quick to pick up on Ms Kuenssburg’s extraordinarily predictable timing.


So far, Kuennsburg has tweeted once about #ToryElectionFraud and has also retweeted her BBC colleague Daniel Sandford three times on the same subject.

We hate to say we told you so, but we did.

We’re watching you, BBC. And not for your hard-hitting, impartial political coverage.

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.
