Full Fact fights bad information

Bad information ruins lives. It promotes hate, damages people’s health, and hurts democracy. You deserve better.

Recent fact checks

On 13 June we fact checked politicians taking part in ITV’s seven-party election debate.

Our round-up features our verdicts on claims about Labour’s tax and spending plans, GDP growth and the Scottish Child Payment.

ITV Debate

This is a speculative figure. It is based on several uncertain assumptions, and some of the detail of Labour’s workings remains unclear.

Manifesto sums

Our General Election 2024 blog has rolling coverage of what we’ve been fact checking during a busy week of the campaign.
