An attack ad on Google run by the Conservatives broke Google rules because of an error by Google.

The ad was shown as the top result on a Google search for “Labour” as the Labour Party launched its manifesto. It initially appeared without a disclaimer, in breach of Google’s terms and conditions which state that “all election ads in the EU… show a disclosure that identifies who paid for the ad”.
