Re the story about trams coming to Bolton: The very first sentence then says the project could happen and goes on to quote, and again further in the article

What you’ve got to do is get the bids in, got to make sure it all kind of stacks up, and then you actually start progressing with work on the ground.

What I’d like to do if we are re-elected as an early priority is start to get the details and ask the civil service to work the specifics of the scheme up and then it will take a couple of years to get everything in order and the ball rolling in terms of money coming through.

This is far from a promise to start building in 2020 and misrepresents what has been announced.
