The last tweet from the once prolific parody @SteveHiltonGuru account, four days ago, was a generous response to former Gove SpAd and social media connoisseur Dom Cummings:
“@odysseanproject: Who put the No10 press office in charge of PR for black cabs? Now cabbies know how spads feel” >>>No10 shld hire Cummings

An appointment made even more unlikely by Cummings piling into No.10 in the Times this morning, not least calling the PM’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn “a classic third-rate suck-up-kick-down sycophant presiding over a shambolic court”. Who else has been the author of some similarly colourful criticism of Llewellyn over the years?
DWEEB OF THE YEAR SHORT-LIST: @xtophercook @sallybercow Rupert Harrison, Craig Dre. Last and def least: Llewellyn

POWERTOOL NOMINEES: obviously Llewellyn: the most destructive force in the govt. (I'd include Rupert Harrison but nobody knows who he is).

Oh no. "out of touch" in Doncaster. Now Llewellyn's stupid list.

“@LuciaHJones: Steve have a lovely Xmas and a Happy New Year” >>>SAME TO YOU. IF ONLY I GOT AS MUCH RESPECT FROM LLEWELLYN
