Last night after Guido reported the legitimate news that anti-porn campaigner Claire Perry had been targeted by internet hackers who hosted porn on her website, the Tory MP went proper shouty crackers on Twitter.
- She accused Guido of hosting a link that distributed porn via her website, something he did not do.
- She then bizarrely claimed that Guido had “sponsored“ the hacking of her website.
- When smears did not work, Perry then tried vague threats about calling the editor of The Sun, despite the story appearing on the blog, for which the editor of The Sun doesn’t have any responsibility.
You can read her collected tweets here. They are without any foundation, merit or a shred of evidence to back them up. Guido suspects it is based on Perry’s dislike of the blog bringing the pushy MP back down to earth occasionally. Perry does not have a leg to stand on here, so if she does not retract the bonkers allegations, should Guido unleash his lawyers? You won’t like them when they’re angry.
