The Advertising Standards Authority(ASA) are responsible for regulating advertising. Their Code requires that adverts are legal, decent, honest and truthful. 

Yet political adverts (including newsletters, Facebook posts, Tweets) are exempt from the Code. 

Even though the ASA believe political adverts SHOULD be regulated, they don’t believe it should be their job to do it.

If there was a way to voluntarily be regulated, I’d sign-up in a flash. 

Unfortunately, this attitude is not universal, and some local politicians or aspiring politicians stretch honesty and truthfulness to breaking point. 

Here you can read the facts, make up your own mind who and what to believe, and decide who deserves your vote next time.
