“Almost nothing on Twitter really matters. The sooner Westminster realises it, the healthier politics will become.”
An amusing moment from Seb Payne’s book promotion event this afternoon, with Payne acknowledging his remarkable resemblance to the man sat on-stage opposite him: the Right Honourable Michael Gove MP. Speaking as the event kicked off, Payne quipped:
“I’m glad you changed your glasses as otherwise this would have looked like a father-son reunion.”
Are they even wearing the same tie?
The Speccie’s all-round internet wizard Seb Payne is joining the FT as digital comment editor, heading up a complete revamp of their online comment. Best known for touring the country in his Mini during the election, Payne is an Islington new media darling with an encyclopedic knowledge of UKIP, and can probably now afford to pay his mechanic.
Worth watching how his sound political views fit in at the Pink ‘Un, Payne (left), starts in January. Congratulations…
