    I saw this tweet:



    and then this one



    About the fact that the Leave campaign have been caught out breaking the law and yet it is not being reported

    Between that and the last paragraph of Peter Hampton's tweet, which I thought was particularity appropriate about "controlling the narrative" It sounds awfully familiar.

    I didn't want to just send a reply saying "us too" as I didn't think it would be helpful, but I do think it would be worth someone with the right knowledge getting in touch with the journalists involved and pointing out the problems we have getting our side of the story about ME across too.

    Do we have someone who could jump on this? Does anyone have something already that could be sent to these/one of these journalists to try to interest them in the ME story??

    Could @JaimeS @EspeMor help at all?

    There are so many problems with the UK media, but so much depends on getting people to understand that details that it's difficult to get people concerned by problems in one area to share concerns surrounding an issue like PACE. Still worth different people having a go, but I expect there will be a low success rate.

    I don't disagree but feel that it is worth a try?
