CCHQ Sent Tory MP Porno Link

Much amusement at a rather unfortunate social media own goal this morning, as Tory MP Rob Wilson attempted to tweet a link to a Guido story, but instead directed his followers to a porno site:

The link went here (NSFW). Guido understands that, rather than Wilson enjoying himself a bit too much on taxpayers’ time, it was CCHQ who texted him the link to the adult website as part of a coordinated attempt to get MPs to tweet lines to take. Assuming that CCHQ would be unlikely to spend their time perusing porn, Wilson seems to have tweeted the link without checking. What a cock-up…

UPDATE: An artist’s impression of the text sent by CCHQ to Tory MPs, linking to porn:

Oops.

UPDATE II: It appears there is an innocent explanation. The link had a missing “5” character; tinyurl.com/cp2nso takes you to porn, tinyurl.com/cp25nso takes you to Guido. Thought it was a bit strange that CCHQ was surfing heterosexual porn…
