PoliticsHome had an “exclusive” investigation this morning into the vast sums splurged on targeted Facebook ads by Dom Raab’s unsuccessful leadership bid. As Guido suspected at the time, he was targeting the wrong audience during the MPs’ phase…

IPSO Clears Kavanagh Column

IPSO has dismissed a complaint about a Trevor Kavanagh opinion column which discussed Muslim grooming gangs in the wake of the Sarah Champion furore. Sorry right-on lefties of Twitter, there was no breach of the Editor’s Code.
