Paul Waugh has confirmed that a locked and hidden Twitter account is in fact that of the Downing Street Director of Communications:

Given that Craig Oliver is using his job title and place of work in his Twitter name, Guido feels we have a right to know what he’s pushing. As well as being nosy…

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Yep, Good call , he is using it while being paid by the taxpayer.

    Too many Tweets make a Twat.

    Piss off Billy. No doubt he takes a shit while being paid by the tax payer, would you also like to see his dung?

    Is it the same for Labour and Ed?

    Is Tom Baldwin paid with taxpayers money or the Labour/unions money?

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Considering his job title is “Director of Communications” and twitter is mode of communication and he is using it while being paid by the taxpayer, then we should see what our money is being spent on.

    Where's Gordon? says:

    Steve Miliband says:

    Does he just use it to spy on other twitterers? Not sure how it all works

    Billy, don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life says:

    Twittering is not communicating , it is the modern day babbling.

    @derekdraper1 is also awaiting some hammer. No avatar. Zprobably best left that way.

    Fess up, now, Fawkes, it’s ALL a farce
    An MP’s just the horse’s arse
    He’s only put there for the show
    The EU front says where they go
    And so it doesn’t look too sinister
    They give us clowns to be Prime Minister
    What’s worst about the commie slime:
    They shame the name of pantomime

  11. 11
    Not sure what all the fuss is about says:

    He already follows Guido, among many others…

    We have ( from the left) a example of a bad buisness, You know, the one that Ed was talking about.

    Ah, Good Times.

    Don’t we just all miss him so much?

    So true

    Desmond Morris says:

    Must admit Gordon did add to the gaiety of the nation. You could always rely on him to do a Mr Bean most days. Dave, Ed and Nick are so bland by comparison (although Ed has been trying to emulate Gordon of late)

  17. 17
    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    So if this FOI revels a plot to smear opposition mps then we should treat it as “modern day babbling”?

    You’d think if Labour really was about Labour, they would be all over Gordo and Tony to give up their millions, made off the back of the worker, and give all their millions to the poor.

    You’d think that Tony, a comrade in arms, would only hire homeless people and give them a leg up, because are Labour, we are for the people.

    You think if I started a homeless people union I could get in on the Millions? The homeless could strike and sleep in the streets and stop traffic.

    Anyone remember the movie “I’m all right Jack” never a truer story about a union.

    I do miss Gordon. What I miss most was his ability to answer a question with the answer of another question. He also had that wonderful smile and the ability to make you feel one the team. Who I was feeling will remain a secret.

    Since when was the NHS set up to be a digital TV Channel?

    Unless they are going to shorten the queues by showing all of Gordons speeches?

    Perfect, are you feeling ill, watch a little TV and drop dead in your armchair.

    Sounds like a lot of faggery to me. Bring ‘em over to NYC, Guido. We’ll show how to deal with fags and deaf women protestors – gas the fuckers, chemical weapons right in the face. Can’t touch NYPD, ‘cos we’re fucking heroes from 9 / 11, right?

    Come on over to NY, Guido, I love your Crimestoppers and shilling for the bankers shit and you can suck my 2″ diseased cock.

    I don’t miss the ugly tvvat.

    At least I don’t need to buy a new telly every week, since there is no longer the urge to put your boot right through the dumbfuckers face.

    Cole Porter (you hum it) says:

    Fraid so, UK governments are irrelevant to all outside UK shores and dismally poor value to those within.

    All very obvious to anybody with half a working brain cell and ignored by those with their snouts in the trough or hoping to get a place in the line.

    The rest are beyond hope and deserve to be fleeced.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
