Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week: Dan Hodges v Asher Dresner

Dan Hodges’ piece in this week’s Speccie on the men and women behind Ed Miliband is well worth a read.

Given he quotes Labour ‘insiders’ as describing Team Ed as “poisonous”, “dysfunctional” and “a bunch of medieval courtiers”, unsurprisingly it hasn’t gone down well with friends of the Labour leader.

Miliband’s former speechwriter Asher Dresner goes out to bat for his old colleagues:

Which, to be fair, is probably true…

    Ignore Hodges’ lies. He is just bitter because I once ignored him at a Fabian Society conference on “Increasing Tractor Production in the Scottish Midlands”

      First thing I’d do is claw the face of the fools who voted Ed to be leader.
      Second I’d claw the face of Ed because it just looks so clawable.
      Third I’d crap in the litter tray just before I walked out to go live with the neighbours.

    DCMS wastes your money assessing what makes you happy

    Sajid Javid has only been Culture Secretary for a matter of days but it is clear that he needs to wage a serious war on waste in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (the very existence of which we question, but that’s for another day). The DCMS squandered an as yet undisclosed sum paying academics to analyse a survey of 40,000 people in order to “develop the evidence base on the wellbeing impacts of cultural engagement and sport participation”. It simply beggars belief that somebody thought it a sensible use of taxpayers’ money to commission the mumbo-jumbo contained in this report, Quantifying and Valuing the Wellbeing Impacts of Culture and Sport.

    I object to the government telling muzee women to report male relatives who plan on going to Syria to fight. Let them all go and die there. The ones who’ve died so far have done us all a favour. One less terrorist and one less benny sponger in our midst. Not that there’s any real chance of muzee women reporting their male relatives. They’re all held in subjugation by their husbands or fully in agreement with whatever they do. I urge British Airways to give free flights to any muslim who wants to go to Syria. As Captain Kirk once said “Let them die!”

      No. The plan was for them to pick up their British supplied Arms when they got to Syria. Unfortunately, the bogus End-User on the certificate had already shipped them to Al Quaeda in the Maghreb who’d passed them onto Boko Haraam. In the event, as usual, the British volunteers are being used as extras in the propaganda war. They’re the dead bodies that were executed. Well, you know, volunteers. No one misses them.
