NHS Twitter Storm in Small Tea-Cup

Twitter plus politics seems to get people very excited.  So the number of people who are hashtagging WeLovetheNHS is in the news.  Sarah Brown is in on the Twitter tag, Downing Street has just sent out an email about it, Cameron did the same yesterday.

Viral!  Some say it even crashed the Twitter system.  It didn’t.  How many people have used the #welovethenhs hash tag exactly?  In three days 11,902 people have Tweeted it a total of 22,642 times at the time of writing.  By comparison   69,991 people have signed the petition on the Downing Street website calling on Gordon Brown to resign and some 2.5 million people watched Dan Hannan dissect Gordon Brown to his face live on YouTube.  Guido knows internet viral storms when he sees them.  This ain’t one.

11,902 people is less than the number of people who come to this blog site on a day in Silly Season when Guido hasn’t even posted an article. Get a grip you twits…

UPDATE : If Sarah and Gordon love the NHS so much, why did she urge him to spend thousands of pounds having his teeth done privately? They don’t love the NHS enough to wait for it to fix his teeth. Hypocrite.

Quote of the Day

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
