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…

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

    Is it the same for Labour and Ed?

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

    Where's Gordon? says:

      Mr Ed, the Honourary Woman says:

      Ah, Good Times.

      Don’t we just all miss him so much?

        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)

          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.


          • Hang The Bastards says:

            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.

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

    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

      Mr Ed, HM's Official Pantomime Opposition Horse says:

      So true

      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.

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

    Good luck in getting a response from those useless Hoons who run FoI at the Cabinet Office

    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.

    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?
