Channel 4 have impartially reviewed the election manifestos of the three major political parties, Labour, Tory and Lib Dem as part of their factcheck series. Labour I feel certainly comes better off, some of their claims that are rebuked still leave impressive statistics in their place. Whereas a lot of the claims the conservatives use, such as “40000 students leave without a GCSE” fail to take into account that the actual pass rate for GCSEs has rose.

All in all quite an interesting read, I’ve added the factcheck RSS to my newsreader.
