Disinformation Reporting

Hello and welcome to the Labour Party’s disinformation reporting page.

The purpose of this page is to allow party members and activists to report disinformation they come across both online and offline.

Disinformation is defined as false information that is spread deliberately to deceive people. This relates to any false information distributed in order to smear the Party, our representatives or activists. It is important to distinguish between disinformation and legitimate political attacks. As long as the attacks are based on facts, or at least on a disputable sequence of events – these will not be considered as disinformation.

Another case of a disinformation attack is when the distributors are inauthentic. These could be fake accounts, bots, or valid users who pretend to be someone else (for example, someone who pretends to be a Labour member).

Reporting disinformation through this form shouldn’t prevent you from reporting them via the disinformation reporting mechanisms which every social media platform has in place. For more information, please read the community guidelines of every platform: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Next Door and YouTube.

After submitting your form, our counter disinformation team will investigate this incident and will establish a response plan. Whenever more information is needed, a member of our team will reach out for more details.
