Chuka Talks Trash About Cyber-Kippers

On the Marr Show this morning Chuka Umunna claimed voters feel disconnected from mainstream politics because they don’t know how to send emails or browse the internet and that “a lot of those voting for Ukip” in the European elections were not computer literate and can’t do things like use email or browse the internet. Note he didn’t say they couldn’t manage to vote in greater numbers than Labour supporters…

Evidence that Chuka is talking trash can be found all over the internet. This is particularly striking:

How does Chuka explain that?

Is Dom Cummings #Winning?

The last tweet from the once prolific parody @SteveHiltonGuru account, four days ago, was a generous response to former Gove SpAd and social media connoisseur Dom Cummings:

An appointment made even more unlikely by Cummings piling into No.10 in the Times this morning, not least calling the PM’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn “a classic third-rate suck-up-kick-down sycophant presiding over a shambolic court”. Who else has been the author of some similarly colourful criticism of Llewellyn over the years?

What a remarkable coincidence. Hashtag winning…

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…
