Doh! James Cockup of the Three Line Whoops

Yesterday the Telegraph’s James Kirkup got all excited and published a story about a gloating email from Guido to the entire Lobby that was cheekily routed by hacking the Tory Press Office mail-server’s distribution list. When Guido explained the process to the sceptical and awfully posh Nice-But-Dim-Jim, he didn’t understand. So rather than e-x-p-l-a-i-n i-t s-l-o-w-l-y to him yet again, Guido demonstrated by sending a piss-take mock press release in the style of the Tory Press Office using the same process.

He published it verbatim, including the hitherto unrevealed email address that is a gateway to the inboxes of the Lobby’s Blackberries. Guido called him immediately to tell him that he had just done something very stupid. Perhaps still not grasping the ramifications he just said enigmatically “the wonders of modern technology”.

Predictably, overnight this has resulted in assorted lefties emailing four-letter abuse to the Lobby’s finest. Do you think James Kirkup is going to be popular with his colleagues on Monday morning?

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
