#LabourDoorStep #GameOn #Fail

Twitter is unbearable on weekends at the best of times, but in election season it becomes a soul-destroying sphere of horse sh*t, with thousands of activists sharing grinning pictures and vague platitudes about the reaction ‘on the doorstep’.

Here’s one such interaction Labour won’t be sharing this side of the election, but should probably use in a’ how not to do it’ guide for the next time:

So far it’s had almost half a million views on Facebook. Well Labour did promise millions of conversations on the doorstep…

1.3 Million Facebook Views For Savage Miliband Take Down

Labour have managed to get Jo Brand to do their latest election broadcast. Last time she endorsed the party, they went on to suffer their worst ever defeat…

Meanwhile, over on Facebook, this video has spread like the clap:

Robot Ed’s monotone repetitive “these strikes are wrong” hit from 2011 is having something of a renaissance. So far 1.3 million voters have watched and shared it with their voting friends. The classics are always the best…

Agenda Setting Journalism

Angry people on Twitter yesterday said that our Ed Miliband scoop yesterday was “not news”.

It seems that Britain’s biggest selling newspapers disagree. We make the news…

Eton Ukulele Loon Was Privately Educated

“I didn’t have any eggs and didn’t want to get arrested. I could have shouted but that is boring” says Robin Grey, who hit the headlines this week by serenading the PM with a ukulele and catchy tune about f**king off back to Eton.

“I consider myself to be an activist. The more I travel round the country the more I see what people have in common” he harps on. And what does he have in common with Dave? Private education and posh accent for one. Grey went to the £11, 643 per annum RGS Newcastle…

Poll: Did Ed Eat His Bogies?

Owen Jones Exits Reality Based Community

doh-owen-jones

So we are not allowed to say that a metropolitan liberal lefty lives in North London and now pointing out that Ed Miliband ruined his brother’s life is apparently anti-Semitic.

A spectacularly hypocritical allegation from someone who works at the Guardian.

Could Labour cheerleaders please provide us with a list of pejorative terms we are allowed to use about their spanner of a leader?

Tony Blair: Public Too Thick For EU Vote

Well reading between the lines:

“Remember the relief we felt when Scotland voted no. Why was that? Because towards the end, having paid only intermittent attention to the enormity of the decision, we awoke to it and realised – I think with shock – how close we had come to relegating ourselves from the Premier League of nations. Now think if the vote had gone the other way. It doesn’t bear thinking of. It would be exactly the same with a vote on Europe. We’re frankly not much focused on it now. But that is the same semi-conscious torpor that almost led us to disaster in keeping the UK together.”

Basically he is saying the people don’t think about these things hard enough, so we can’t risk them getting it wrong by giving them the chance.

Because Tony Blair never got anything wrong in the face of popular opinion now, did he…

 

IPSA Dump On Labour’s Zero Hours Spin

Labour’s onslaught against the mythical “zero hours contract epidemic” hits the buffers when it is gently pointed out that almost 70 Labour MPs employ staff on flexible contracts. Labour’s stock reply is to blame IPSA for this embarrassing hypocrisy, yet the expenses watchdog have hit back today:

“The MP is the employer, it is a matter for them whether they choose to use a zero-hours contract.”

Amusingly it was left to Tristram Hunt to bluster as the carpet was pulled from underneath his argument on the Daily Politics earlier:

Delicious…

Gordon Promises Scots £800,000,000… From a Tax on Bankers’ Bonuses!

You could not make it up. Despite no longer being an MP, Gordon is back and making outlandish spending claims in Scotland.

The former Prime Mentalist has told a Glasgow audience that Labour will spend £800 million more in Scotland to “end austerity”:

And here are the fantasy numbers:

That would be the tax on bankers’ bonuses that Labour have already spent 11 times:

Oh dear…[…]
