From the Frequently Asked Questions section of Twitter’s very own help website:

Can I edit a tweet once I post it?
Nope. Once it’s out there, you can’t edit it. You can delete an update by clicking the trash icon on the right end of the update, but you can’t make changes.

This puts Labour whip David Wright’s claim that his tweet about the Conservatives being “scum sucking pigs” was “tinkered with” beyond any doubt.  If he had just admitted that it was too far and said sorry last night this whole thing would have been over within minutes, but, as ever, it is the lying that will nail him. CCHQ are pushing this one aggressively and Pickles has just written to Wright accusing him of breaking the Ministerial Code.

A Minister of the Crown could well be set to be Twitter’s first major political scalp.

    God this lot make me sick!!!
    If it isn’t the bastard Prime Minister crying on TV, as directed to by his PR, media-whore wife (who’s young enough to be his daughter), shaming the nation and trying to get someone to like him, it’s ministers spending all their time Tweeting and Blogging rather than running the country. That freak Kerry McCarthy is THE prime example: she does nothing for Bristol East at all, simply justifying her inaction and smearing others.

    I repeat my worry that Cameron may not be able to take out Labour; if not we need to get ready for a coup d’etat with help of MI5 individualists and sensible military men.

    Completely O/T but funny


    One thing about blokes from Oz is that their hearts and
    humor are always in the right place!

    T. B. Bechtel, a City Councilor from Newcastle, Australia,
    was asked on a local live radio talk show, just what he
    thought about the allegations of torture of suspected
    terrorists. His reply prompted his ejection from the studio,
    but to thunderous applause from the audience.


    “If hooking up one raghead terrorist prisoner’s testicles
    to a car battery to get the truth out of the lying
    little camel shagger will save just one Australian life,
    then I have only three things to say,’ ‘Red is positive,
    black is negative, and make sure his nuts are wet.”

    I see he was also a bit of a snouter round the old trough as well. Maxing out last year on the old away from home lark. Also seems very quiet fro an MP who Tweets so loud
    # Has spoken in 3 debates in the last year — well below average amongst MPs.
    # Has received answers to 1 written question in the last year — below average amongst MPs.
    # Is a member of 0 select committees (0 as chair).

    the fact he calls it a ‘commotion’ says all you need to know – not angry his account has been hacked, not dismayed at what was said, not distancing himself whilst apologising – well Mr Wright you are v v wrong – I am a Tory – am I Scum?

    I wish these sad old Labour MP’s would stop twittering their bile – surely they should be knocking on doors or completing job apps for McDonald’s – Ronald McDonald will have a run for his money.

    PS – Sally Bercow ought to knock the childish tory bashing tweets too – has she no respect for her husband?

    With great respect you copy the original tweet, paste it in the send box make changes/edits in the send box, Delete the original tweet, then publish the amended edited version..BUT it has to be the orginal account holder unless the RT version is edited as described above .

    Mrs Thatcher was correct, the left wing are the enemy within and I look forward with great relish to helping the military with the coup.

    It’s not just lying, it’s lying about being the victim of a serious criminal offence – computer hacking – and one that, if it were true, would be a national-security issue.

    Imagine if a Government minister really had been hacked, especially in the way that Wright describes (on-the-fly hacking of his datastream). He’d be speaking to the police, the Cabinet Office and MI5. And probably trying to keep it quiet.

    I don’t think people are appreciating just how serious a claim Wright is making.

    The ghost of Winston Smith says:

    They do. It’s just that nobody believes him.

    Come to think of it I don’t suppose he expected anybody to believe him. He’s just taken his cue from his masters. Look at, for instance, Balls lying about his relationship with MacBride last year. The NuLab attitude seems to be “Ok, so I’m lying, you know I’m lying, and I know you know I’m lying, but as long as you can’t prove it, it doesn’t count!”

    Hopefully it won’t work in this case as it is so obviously, demonstrably a lie, but in the kind of Orwellian nightmare we’re living in now where the truth is whatever a government minister last said it was, I wouldn’t bet on it.

For once in his miserable pointless lamentable existence, there will be a genuine smile on Gordon’s big fat stupid face, to be replaced within seconds by the most contorted grimace he’s ever pulled, as he realises he has to sort out the debt catastrophe he created. There’ll be no idling around in retirement, blaming it all on the “Tory government”, which is what he and his worthless cronies hope for at the moment.

    His torpid little mind will snap as he drags Labour to its grave.

    Pound’s cover having been blown, let’s hope that the arsehole isn’t used again to front ZaNuLieBor’s spiteful campaigns, or that one wobbly-spined journalist has the nerve to actually beard him about his stooge activities.

    I don’t think he went far enough, and I wish all MPs would say what they really mean more often, but because of the over-sensitive Tories, we now have apologies, backtracks and basic bullshit. Boring. Say what you think, whatever the language.

    He’s some jumped up trash with a media studies ‘degree’ from a fucking dead-beat poly. He managed to worm his way into a ‘regeneration’ project in Sandwell (dealing with property developers and contractors wearing sheepskin coats with fat brown envelopes in to hand out).

    Sandwell is a Nu Labour flag ship of low life expectancy, illiteracy, drug abuse, smoking, teen pregnancy, crime and wretched soul-destroying deprivation.

    A number of the filth in a the criminal gang, that is the Sandwell Nu Liebore party, have been jailed for theft and corruption (check it out).

    As you might expect, while the residents on Sandwell (under the boot of Nu Liebore) are falling down dead at 50 (resulting from a life of zero opportunities and Nu Liebore sponsored urban terrorism), Nu Liebore filth in the Sandwell Council, on the fucking ‘Diversity Panel’, are deliberately wasting money on shite, such as, £65,000 for ‘gipsy awareness’ month in schools.

    “What I think has happened is someone has tinkered with that and made it more offensive.

    “I try to use Twitter to engage with people. Someone has messed with my account. I find that very frustrating.”

    Mr Wright said his original message had been removed from the site and he was now conducting an investigation and had contacted Twitter to find out what had happened. ”

    Moralizing? If Labour had been honest with the electorate in what they have said to us since 1997, then you would be right, however, we scum sucking pigs also have freedom of speech.

    Honesty is not been this Government’s policy.

    Actually freedom of speech and thought have been seriously eroded under Labour, so I can understand why the Tories hate this Government, but for a senior Labour politician to suggest Tories are scum sucking pigs?? I do not get it !!

    It gets better. He stated consitituents could turn up without an appointment, then kept a person waiting for the day and then, after refusing to see the person, attempted to turf him out by calling the Police.

    Sadly, as the officers called found the constituent had a perfectly legitimate reason to be there, the MP had no choice but to meet him. I wonder if the constituent got a cup of tea for his troubles……

    This also from the Torygraph:
    “David Wright accepted a £16,787 payment from the owners of his flat in return for giving up the right to cheap rent, then moved out. Claimed £599 for a TV but a £64.99 claim for a razor was turned down”

    He did also have a claim for move in monies accepted for £1975.87.

    So to only did he make a tidy sum from his landlord, but the taxpayer paid for him to move after he pocketed the cash. What a nice chap.

    He’s a very generous tenant though. On the 13th June 2008 Mr Wright claimed for a new carpet in the property owned by his landlord to the value of £1175.00. Now, I always laboured under the impression that items like carpets in a property were the responsibility of the landlord, but of course I would also be assuming that, should Mr Wright decided to move to another property – perhaps after another financial inducement by his landlord like last time? – then he will of course take his 80% wool pile with him. Along with the lino also claimed for in the kitchen & bathroom.

    Will he also be taking the £25.00 toilet seat, claimed in November? Who knows……

    But as the MP squeals on his taxpayer-funded website:
    “I know that a lot of people are angry about MPs’ allowances and there is a belief that all of us are abusing the system. The truth is that the majority of the 646 MPs in parliament of all parties are hard working and honourable people.”

    All this from an MP who voted against full disclosure of MPs expenses last year. Well, the people of Telford have a choice in a few weeks time.

    Dear Anon. 14, A safety message.( PS Did you study and test the electicity formulae at school or was it just media studies)

    Car batteries have tremendous current capabilities, and a short circuit can produce a huge, white-hot electric arc. It’s hot enough to melt steel and inflict severe burns, and to set the car on fire. Always use caution when working with metal tools around the battery. If you must work on it, disconnect the negative (ground) cable first, so that the positive terminal no longer has potential to the vehicle ground. It is not dangerous to touch the positive terminal with your bare skin, because 12V is not a hazardous voltage. But it is made of lead, which is not good to touch if you can avoid it.

    They just don’t give a fuck anymore. What’s 300million when you already owe a trillion?

    Brown’s attitude is to just burn/spend as much as they can to try and avoid too much annihilation at the polls. If 300million buys them 5 votes then they’ll do it.

    If Brown’s willing to use his dead baby daughter as a way to get a handful of sympathy votes, then using 300million of money that isn’t even his is not going to be a problem for him.

    His house was raided by a Grampian police officer, witnessed by Shropshire police. His computer, files and some personal effects, for example CDs were taken (why?).

    His bail includes a gagging order, so we don’t know how much he will be able to say about what has happened to him.

    2. By denying it and claiming that his twitter account has been hacked just raises the profile of the matter and makes it far worse if it turns out that has not told the truth

    3. It makes people start to research other matters and comments he’s made revealing he has “form” using such phrases plus thing’s he’s done or not done within his constituency and local dis-agreements in his surgery etc he’s been involved in. Again causing damage to him, his re-election chances and to the Labour Party and forcing him to resign if it is shown that he’s lied over this.

These leaders have excellent salaries (much more than MPs), cars, family benefits of all kinds etc. The sooner the proles see through these greedy bastards the sooner this country will begin to get back on track.

    When you have c*nts like the this David Wright calling Tories ‘scumsuckers’ it rather gives the lie to this notion that lying c*nts like Mandelson are trying to peddle about the Tories sabotaging a crossparty consensus on how to pay for old age care.

    Doesn’t it though.

    If Labour was inviting cross-party participation in talks on how to pay for old-age care it would only be with a view to fucking the Tories over when the tricky question of how this was to be paid for was posed. Labour would claim credit for the initiative but look to saddle the blame for how it was going to be funded on the Tories. This is exactly the same tactic they used with IDS over the Iraq war. Get him in, put an arm around his shoulder give it the ‘national interest – time to put our differences aside’ line and then let them take the blame when it turns out you (Labour) had bare-faced lied.

    This David Wright shows what thoroughly evil, nasty, narrow-minded, mendacious c*nts the entire Labour party is composed of.

    His leering, arrogant face and the fact that he’s probably enjoyed nine years pigging his fucking nasty, mean, spiteful face at the trough while dismissing all dissenters as ‘scumsuckers’ makes me puke.

    Alas, in my time online I have come to realise that his attitude is typical amongst Labour apologists. Any dissent at all and that’s it. Posts pulled. Accusations made. False umbrage taken and then if all else fails outright abuse.

    And I could accept that if their policies were based on fairness or sanity or were coherent. But when you scratch the surface of anything they do or propose you see that it is motivated not by the common good but is yet another mean, nasty, devisive, nutcase policy designed to further cement their position in power and fuck-all good for anything else.

    “Telford is actually in Shropshire and classed as being in the Midlands and far from being a “safe” Labour seat it could very well be lost to the Tories at the election”

    My post about shit-hole constituencies is about the LOADS of tiny Northern constituencies which are safe. It is about the MP’s that sit there, completely insulated from the real world and who WILL survive the next election and who are straining at the bit to blame the tories for ALL of this current mess the country is in!

    It is NOT therefore about David Wright’s constituency. Thankfully David Wright’s cowardice and lies have now shown what a twat he is and will be a big help in getting rid of him at the next election!

    Not sure, but I heard a small part of a radio2 show this lunch time in which a middle-aged tory woman was laying into him, saying that she could not believe that the same party, that gave her business a start with the small enterprise initiative under Thatcher in the 1980’s, could be proposing taking the very hard earned, but modest amount of money that her business has earned over the past 25 years from her in her later years.

    Can I edit a tweet once I post it?
    Nope. Once it’s out there, you can’t edit it. You can delete an update by clicking the trash icon on the right end of the update, but you can’t make changes.
    That message, reported by the Guardian and other news outlets, has since been deleted from Twitter after it caused upset among the Tory faithful.

    This bloke, in his cheap suit and cheap tie probably believes that he is above the Queen.

    That the crown means nothing.

    That Royalty are “old news” and should be abolished.

    That the money spent on the royal family is a disgrace.

    That “ordinary” people are just as “good” as royalty.

    Am I jumping to wild conclusions?

    I think not. The way he behaves IN THE QUEENS NAME, after all he is (however much it sickens him to the point of wanting to scratch his own eyes out) a “minister of the crown”.

    He is also (again however much he tries to ignore it) a member of HER MAJESTY’S parliment.

    He’s probably busy deleting his other messages which also have “toryscum” as a hashtag, and then blaming that on other people too.

    He’s also posted one with the scum hashtag on this message:

    Remember John Smith’s Social Justice commission – Tories had nothing to say then either #Toryscum 8:52 PM Feb 13th from mobile web

    He’s probably posted loads of other messages along the same lines

    He’s also retweeted:

    “Stop Press: Arseholes without an ounce of humanity accuse Gordon Brown of using his dead daughter as a poll-bounce strategy.”

    David Wright is claiming the password for his Twitter account were on his laptop which was stolen in London in December. And he did not think to change the passwords on his accounts for getting on for three months?

    Apparently Wright had an interesting reputation at school, the Wrockwardine Wood Comprehensive school, a bastion of trendy lefty twaddle when Wright was a pupil, there.


    “I do know a person who went to school with him but i can’t tell you what they said about him John would have to close the site down, but i will send John a email.”

    There’s legs on this story! Will it result in Wright having to resign?
