Where’s Mili?™ – Calamity Kenny Gets the Blame for Twitter Fail

Labour are having a spectacularly bad week. Ed finally surfaced today to commiserate the death of TV’s Bob Holness, star of Blockbusters:

A is at the other end of the keyboard from O. A source in Ed’s office was quick to spin that given Kenny Young, the Press Officer Manager with emphasis on the manager, is in charge of the twitter feed, “and not much else”, this is most certainly his handy-work.

We are told that a “relaunch speech” is currently being “desperately cobbled together” for Monday or Tuesday. What could possibly go wrong?

    In fairness, Kenny only works for him as part of Ed’s equal opportunities programme. We have to get special needs kids into work somehow.

    Didn’t Ed make about 8 ‘relaunch’ speeches last year?

        The comments on here have had me in stitches, but the Menstural Cycle Display Team name nearly made me fall of the sofa laughing…….funny!

    It wasn’t widely known that Bob “give me a negr*” Holness was founder of the Klan’s Goring On Thames branch.

      Everyone knows that, TT. It was amalgamated with the Henley-on-Thames chapter after certain … irregularities were discovered in the accounts.

    What? So these celebrity twitterers don’t write it themselves? Their PR people do it? I’m amazed.

    If he’s not careful he’ll have Diane round to complain about this. That is, if she can get a taxi.

    RIP Bob, a great entertainer and also a perennial favourite for winning pub quizzes in the ‘list the James Bonds’ category.

    To be fair the lad who has to type the tweets looks about 12, so he wouldn’t remember Blockbusters.

    Son of Brown! See how quick he is to blame someone in his office.

    It’s his twitter feed, it’s his responsibility.

      So Ed Miliband’s twitter isn’t actually from Ed himself.

      All those tweets about ..’off to Ikea for a cheeseboard’ and ‘just saw Linda Barker in Sainsburys.Still looking hot!” and “ho-hum..do the washing up then off for a poo .” aren’t really Ed’s ?

      I’m disillusioned. I thought these vacuous puffs and pointless endorsements were his vacuous puffs and pointless endorsements.

    Just like last years riots in london, which involved a couple of city blacks. I meant blocks! What the hell…

    Brown's finest hour.."I've had enough of THIS I'm off !" says:

    Ed is obviously trying to beat his ex-boss,Brown’s record for re-launches and with the same result…Ed isn’t just flatlining he’s actually so far beneath the line to be hardly noticeable

    I wonder if Ed gets O’s and A’s mixed up in the bedroom with Mrs M?

    I trust that the family of Bob will instigate civil proceedings against Ed for wilful misrepresentation of an innocent game show.

    140 character assassination… or suicide… by the entire Labour ‘machine’.

    Can’t wait to see how BBC and Newsnight tries to spin this one… ‘Look over there, it’s a Murdoch (possibly) doing something… er… a source… has told us.’

    Context is all.

      The BBC's unnofficial spokesperson says:

      There is no story here.

      But there is lots of man made climate change and the Tory led coallition Government are going to make life harder for millions of hard working families.

      We are currently filming a lavish new and very expensive sequel to life in the freezer where we see ice actually melting in a gin & tonic.

      Thank you for your money.

    Special Ed says:

    The strangest thing of all, is that when I try to type blackbusters on my mac it actually autocorrects to blockbusters. You have to try really hard to screw up like this.

    AnotherAnon. says:

    The tweet is still there.Perhaps they are hoping no one will notice?

    Genghiz the Kahn says:

    Ed couldn’t organise a piss up at The Greene King Brewery.

    I never thought it was possible to conceive a politican more socially and technologically inept than Gordon Brown, until I heard of his successor.

    Ha ha ha ha ha!! EPIC FAIL!!! That’s blackbusters….completely priceless.

    I think it might well be saying “Goodbye for now” to Ed.

    It’s made the Mail now

    Something on your mind, Ed? Miliband’s tweet tribute to Bob Holness says he will be fondly remembered for ‘BLACKBUSTERS’
    Comes after he was forced to call Diane Abbott yesterday to demand she apologise for Twitter comments about white people

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
