Featherstone's Facebook Fight

For a self-proclaimed social media guru, LibDem Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone seems to be bouncing from scrape to scrape online. First there were the mandarins who had to take her aside and discreetly suggest perhaps it wasn’t particularly ministerial to discuss being in the bath on Twitter, and now her Facebook activities might cause a few red faces:

Why exactly is a LibDem Coalition Minister part of a Facebook campaign called LibDems Against Tory Coalition?

UPDATE: Lynne’s some what grumpy and aggressive staffer attempted to give Guido the 101 on how to use Facebook. The line is that the person must have changed their name after inviting his boss to be their friend. “Do you seriously expect her to monitor all those people?” Well yes, we do. If she is going to claim to “get” social media and run her own profile, then she needs to put her money where her mouth is.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
