In 2010 Full Fact was launched as a practical response to the misuse of statistics in public debate. Our factchecks make it possible to choose who and what to trust while our strategic corrections and interventions gradually improve the quality of public debate by changing the behaviour of political figures. Mevan Babakar gave this Lightning talk at Notwestminster 2016, Saturday 13th February in Huddersfield. Find out more at: www.notwestminster.org.uk
