Labour’s Digital Revolution Will Not Be Shared

digital-tom

Tom Watson is one of the more savvy digital operators and he is promising to revolutionise Labour’s digital campaigning in this video released on YouTube. Unfortunately it has – after being up over a week – only managed to chalk up 748 views. This is despite Labour’s YouTube channel having 16,279 loyal subscribers. Why?

Well it doesn’t help that the video is unlisted and  hidden from search traffic, with sharing on social media actively discouraged. Doh! Clearly the revolution will not be shared… 

Uncharacteristically Guido will offer some digital campaigning advice for free. Spend more money on targeting online advertising during campaigns. It works. Don’t rely on tweeting to your most dedicated supporters in the Twitter echo chamber. Also, this chap is right:

Hope that helps…

Lucy Allan Deletes Late Night Facebook Rant (Again)

Tory MP Lucy Allan has been under pressure since Guido revealed she doctored a constituent’s email to add a death threat. It’s fair to say she could be handling the ensuing scrutiny a little better. At around 11 pm last night she posted this regrettable status update on Facebook, making a series of allegations against local councillors and dramatically concluding: “It was never about me. You got that wrong. It was always about Telford”. The post has since been deleted.

Strangely, Allan claims in the post that it is all a “disgusting lie”, despite previously fessing up. You know how it is, you post a Facebook status late at night then regret it in the morning and delete your account. A word of advice from Guido: ignore the trolls and put down the keyboard …

UPDATE: She’s deleted this fightback video as well:

“I know I should not have engaged with these people on social media..” Just stop… 

Scottish Labour Clutserfcuk

genertaion

The launch of the Scottish Labour party conference is going well, then. They had to remove from YouTube within minutes this new PPB urging Scots to take a “fresh look” at the party after cocking up the spelling of the giant word in the middle of the screen. Leading to joyous Nats mocking them with the #genertaion hashtag…

Here is the original in all its glory, for Guido readers only…

In Campaign in a Legal Pickle

in campaign site

The In Campaign are advertising for a Director of Compliance to help them fulfil their regulatory and legal obligations. By the looks of things whoever takes on the job will have their work cut out.

A quick browse through their new website reveals that they are collecting internet cookies but are not declaring that they are doing so. In breach of EU regulations.

They don’t disclose their registered company name anywhere on the site. A criminal offence.

And they don’t display a privacy policy, despite collecting names and addresses. A breach of the Information Commissioner’s Office’s guidelines.

It also appears that they haven’t registered a data controller with the Information commissioner. Another criminal offence. 

Perhaps they should have hired that compliance director before they launched?

Cooper’s Cross-Party Migrant Message to MPs: “Take a Selfie”

Yvette Cooper has responded to Andy Burnham weaponising the refugee crisis by writing to every single MP, telling them the situation “transcends party politics and the Labour Party leadership election”. See what she did there…

Yvette’s bold cross-party pitch?

“We are writing to you now to encourage you to… Take a selfie with a #refugeeswelcome banner and put it on Twitter and Facebook, encouraging others to do the same.”

Such leadership.

Cooper and Burnham might be trying to make a stand on migrants now, but they weren’t always so noble. The Telegraph points out the pair’s voting record on asylum issues:

Only Jezza’s voting record has been consistently migrant-friendly…

50 Shades of Burnham
