A new website and Twitter account has opened – dedicated to throwing the clear light of evidence on Tory and LibDem Coalition claims.
It’s called ‘Evidence’ – and you can follow it at @EvidenceUK, or read the blog at http://evidenceuk.info/wordpress/

Here’s a first sample of their work – 8 things you need to know about the Coalition and the NHS

1. Here is a list of every Private Firm who has bought access to your Patient Records. Many of them donate to the Tories

2. In March, the Tories shut down the website that allowed us to measure £15bn of NHS Privatisation
