Conclusive Conservative victory on Friday due to FB

Apparently the torys have ploughed money into the dark arts of targeted facebook advertising (a la Trump), and are thus expecting a resounding victory on Friday. So even with print media being somewhat old hat, they still hold the purse strings on IT and misinformation, via such ubiquity as facebook. Labour and The Liberals and Greens need to bone-up pretty DQ (pdq), because without the capital to pay the right wing elite and mercenaries, they will yet again be out of influence on the dominant media platforms

Chris, if you start a post with the word 'Apparently', you should expect it to be challenged.

Any attribution?

Both from May, but believe me if you don't think it's happening, or already happened, just wait 'til 'Blackish' Friday?

Not a question of personal belief, just detail rather than opinion. Ta for the links.
