Labour claiming government spending is Party spending

In a Tweet a few minutes ago, @brightonhovelabour claimed that “Labour provide free internet and laptops to #brighton families with children who get free school meals”.

This is in effect Labour claiming government spending to be Party spending

The local Labour Party must immediately apologise for this claim and withdraw the Tweet.  It is not Labour that is providing the laptops.  It is the tax payer. The Government is not the private preserve of the Labour Party.  Yes, there is a Labour government, and yes it is a Labour policy, and good policy at that. 

 But the Labour Party should never be arrogant enough to claim that government expenditure equates to the Labour Party itself doing something.
