Open Britain Endorse LibDems in Witney

open

Open Britain, the zombie campaign of ex-BSE Remoaners, claims to be non-partisan. Odd, then, that they’ve tweeted to their followers telling them to vote LibDem in the Witney by-election today. Do Open Britain’s vocal Tory backers Anna Soubry and Nicky Morgan endorse this message? Surely former Clegg spinner turned Open Britain chief James McGrory didn’t accidentally tweet from the wrong account…

UPDATE: The tweet has now been deleted.

UPDATE II: Guido is told the tweet was not sent by McGrory, it was sent accidentally by a current LibDem press officer who has access to the account. He deleted it and then tweeted it from the LibDem press office account. Doesn’t exactly disabuse us of the notion that Open Britain is just a LibDem front…

UPDATE III: Open Britain are at pains to point out that their co-director Joe Carberry worked for Labour for ten years and that they also have Tories in their top team.

Quote of the Day

George Osborne’s Evening Standard leader on Leave voters:

“Now, like a duped drunk in a strip bar, voters find that, far from getting their hands on the goodies, they have been left with a large bill.”
