Labour’s attack on Xinjiang-made PPE is only the latest in a wave of disinformation

The Labour Party has called on the Conservative government to not make PPE contracts with Xinjiang-based firms in the latest set of unfounded attacks by western politicians against China.

Challenge made the case for why Labour’s right-wing candidate is not the best representative for the anti-Thatcher youth as well as the importance of communists having an independent political campaign due to the swinging ideological pendulum of Labour leaders.

Never have these words rang more true and more relevant than today.

Why is Labour losing?
