Theresa May’s British government are taking a page out of David Cameron’s book and seemingly putting a wedge of money into selling her bad deal.
When the term ‘Brexit Deal’ is googled, the top result is an ad that reads: “Brexit Deal Explained | Withdrawal Agreement | Political Declaration”.
It then takes punters through to an official government page entitled: “The Brexit Deal explained” and claims that “we have achieved a deal with the EU that delivers on that decision, a deal the nation can unite behind and one that Parliament should back”. Brexiteers won’t agree.
As others have noted, it also appears that the government may be promoting May’s deal on Facebook and Twitter as well.
Interesting to see sponsored Google Ads by the Government promoting May's Brexit deal – and that the cookies requested when you click through suggest they're also spending on Facebook and Twitter ads. How much taxpayers' money is going on this, @GavinBarwell? cc @the_tpa pic.twitter.com/Xt4pN6oBHf

We had the £9 million pro-Remain government leaflet last time, how much money is going to be wasted pushing this capitulation deal?
