#LabourDoorStep #GameOn #Fail

Twitter is unbearable on weekends at the best of times, but in election season it becomes a soul-destroying sphere of horse sh*t, with thousands of activists sharing grinning pictures and vague platitudes about the reaction ‘on the doorstep’.

Here’s one such interaction Labour won’t be sharing this side of the election, but should probably use in a’ how not to do it’ guide for the next time:

Perhaps not the best choice of venue given the Labour Students branch at the very same university was abolished just six months ago, because they didn’t have enough members to fill their committee positions.

If Labour can’t win over students in Nick ‘Tuition Fees’ Clegg’s own backyard…
