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…

Labour’s Spoof Tory Facebook Memories

Pretty good attack video, light touch, amusing and not too laboured. This has Blue State Digital’s fingerprints all over it. Better production values than we have seen recently, will it win any votes?

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:

It’s the best news Ed Balls has had in ages.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
