A controversial policy allowing politicians to run false ads on Facebook will extend to the United Kingdom as the country prepares to vote in a historic December election, Facebook confirmed to CNN Business.

The policy is being championed by Facebook executive Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom who himself once complained about "lies" spread during the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Facebook is allowing politicians to lie on their platform by buying paid adverts.  Facebook will do no form of checking to verify whether what is being stated is truth, smears or propaganda.

This is going to create injustice, particularly in the upcoming General Election in the UK.

Please share and sign this petition to stop Facebook from allowing adverts on their platform that are lies.  Any posted ads from politicians, anywhere in the world on Facebook, must be fact checked and must be the truth or Facebook will have become complicit in acts of political corruption and subsequent injustices resulting from that act.  Facebook must comply in order to preserve truth and justice.

We the undersigned wish Facebook to only allow ads from politicians, anywhere in the world, that Facebook have fact checked and verified as the truth.
