Come Back Nasty Ken, All Is Forgiven

Now that Ken has neutered his entire campaign by promising not to say anything negative, ever, he’s stuck with terrible and desperate email stunts. This one is off the cringeworthy scale:

From: Simon Fletcher Chief of Staff

Subject: An email I wanted to you to see

Guido —

I’ve just been sent an email by our Head of Digital and Volunteers and I really wanted you to see it.

He says that we have been overwhelmed with the response for our huge day of action on Tuesday, “Fare Deal Tuesday”.

It promises to be a big day as we leaflet hundreds of stations and thousands of commuters.

I really hope you can be a part of it.

Best,

Simon

Subject: Overwhelmed

Simon,
I wanted to let you know that hundreds of people have signed up for Tuesday morning.

It is quite incredible that so many people have signed up.

It shows that we can out organise the Tories.

Do you reckon we could send out an all supporters email to tell people the scale of what they’ve done already and give other people the opportunity to take part?

Cheers,
Mike

Who actually speaks like that?

Quote of the Day

Boris Johnson was shown a trophy monkey head as he toured a room of illegally-poached animals seized by Scotland Yard. He said:

“What’s this poor chap here? Faint air of a … Labour backbencher.”
