Google News Breaks Tory Hearts

More than a few Tory hearts were broken this morning when they went onto Google News and saw this screen. Note the poll shot next to the headline "Political Winds of Change". Unfortunately when you click on the link for the poll it refers to the numbers of the British Tory party viz Labour. Cruel, cruel Google News, taunting Tories that way and on New Years Eve, too.

I guess one could ask why Google news would provide a picture of a poll that looks like a Canadian poll on a page supposedly about Canadian politics. Conspiracy theorists could say they were trying to fool the casual observer into thinking the Canadian Tory party was actually ahead in the polls, but I am not a conspiracy theorist.
