Wannabee Twerp Labour MP Twitters Taunts

The Sun has another Twitter political casualty:

For months Labour spin has been extolling Twitter as a vote winning political tool whilst the Tories have been more wary – Dave famously saying “too many tweets make a twat”. In the first week of the campaign we have had two Twitter stories getting cut-through from the blogosphere to the mainstream media, both involving Labour, both negative. Prezza’s attempt to organise a conspiracy to defraud the Tories and now Labour PPC Stuart MacLennan insulting his voters, The Sun reports:

He complained of being in a pub full of “depressed teuchters” then poked fun at elderly voters by branding them “bloody coffin dodgers”.  In some posts he claimed to have grown up in Ireland – before then insisting he was raised in Moray. He also wrote: “Just won a signed Celtic shirt in a raffle. Want to vom.”  And his sneering comments targeted the country’s whisky industry – a major employer in his potential constituency.  He claimed: “Johnnie Walker Red Label is so awful they can’t sell it in Scotland.”

Prophetically one tweet said “Iain Dale reckons the biggest gaffes will likely be made by candidates on Twitter – what are the odds it’ll be me?” Well we are only 3 days into the race, but Guido reckons you are just ahead of Prezza…
