LibDem Website Euro Humiliation

Last week, the LibDem webpage listing the names of the party’s MEPs had the following url: www.libdems.org.uk/meps.

This afternoon, following the loss of all but one LibDem MEP at the Euro elections, the url has been updated to: www.libdems.org.uk/mep.

The page now looks like this:

mep

At least they won’t have any problem reaching quorum at their endless group meetings.

Labour MP Explains How Websites Work

Monday, March 17, 2014

Flappy Dave

Downing Street have worked hard to brush away the tennis and wine loving PM’s ‘chillaxing’ image, especially after a No. 10 aide once revealed Dave spent “a crazy, scary amount of time playing Fruit Ninja on his iPad”. They won’t be pleased to hear then that the PM has discovered another addictive iPhone game. Travelling back from an tech event in Germany recently, digital Dave learnt a few things on the plane from British entrepreneur Ben Medlock, who invented the SwiftKey app: “I introduced him to cult hit Flappy Bird. I’m proud to report he didn’t beat my score.” Practice makes perfect…

Ghastly Ghose Does it Again
Worst Carpet-Bagging Digital Fail

20140131-085001.jpgYou almost have to admire the persistence of serial loser Katie “Ghastly” Ghose. The woman who turned a 27% referendum lead for “Yes to AV” into a 36% victory for the “No to AV” campaign has had similar luck in her several ill-fated attempts to find a safe Labour seat to stand in. Now she has thrown her hat into the ring to take the Stoke-on-Trent North seat being vacated by retiring Joan Walley. Ghose’ other half, Fabian Society general secretary Andy Harrop, has been doing his best to boost Katie’s profile, getting her on stage with Owen Jones and Jackie Ashley at his conference last weekend. One word of advice: perhaps she should change the name of the constituency at the top of her new Stoke-on-Trent North website:

Dods’ Tweeter of the Year Isn’t on Twitter

Well this is embarrassing. At last night’s Dods parliamentary awards, editor-in-chief Paul Waugh proudly presented the award for Tweeter of the Year to iPad-loving Labour MP Tom Harris. Dods explained that they felt Harris was a worthy winner “for his daily usage of Twitter.” Just one problem: Harris isn’t actually on Twitter

Cool Clegg Down With the Kidz

Either very late or very early for Ed Balls Day. Or some amusing retaliation…

UPDATE: The Son of Brown can’t let his Gordon’s favourite debate phrase:

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
