Our campaign is making significant progress:

  • As a significant step towards regulation, and to put a stop to the electoral advertising disinformation arms race we’ve seen recently we’ve started pushing for political parties to sign a advertising code of conduct to prevent lies in ads ahead of the various elections we have in 2024. We’ve made significant progress. For example, for the London Mayor election 6 candidates signed up including Labour, The Green Party and Liberal Democrat candidates. The Green Party and Plaid Cymru have signed up to it nationally also.
  • Several Parties now officially support electoral ad regulation due to our efforts including The Green Party.
  • The House of Lords Democracy & Digital Technology Committee, that we gave evidence to, recommended electoral ad regulation in 2020.
  • Its Chair Lord Puttnam now chairs an electoral review panel that we set up for the May 2022 elections to demonstrate how it could practically work. We now have the process set up and will be running it again at the next general election.
  • The Advertising Standards Authority updated its position in 2020 to say that it is happy to help with regulation.
  • Due to the growing theme of lying in politics over the last few years we’ve noticed that almost all MPs that we now speak to from opposition parties support it.
  • Liz Saville Roberts MP included our ask in a private members bill in 2022 also.

 

We are the only organisation campaigning for regulation to stop lies in political advertising. This progress would not have happened without us. We’ve done all of this on a shoestring and by relying on unpaid volunteers. However, the reality is that we can’t continue the campaign without your support to cover our modest operational costs.

If you want to see the evidence for yourself of how widespread electoral ad disinformation is you can read our reviews on the last few electoral processes here. The report covering the 2019 general election is a good place to start. You can also see Lord Puttnam being interviewed by Byline TV about our campaign here.

You can give your money to many good causes. However, due to the small size of our organisation and limited time we can devote to fundraising your donation will make a tangible difference to our ability to continue campaigning. If you feel as passionately as we do about the need to have rules to prevent lies in electoral ads (like the £350 million Brexit “battlebus”) please consider supporting us.

If you’d like any any more information about our campaign before donating please email Alex at alex(dot)tait(at)reformpoliticaladvertising(dot)org.

We’d be happy to talk to you.
