Jeremy Hunt v Donald Trump

President Trump tweets criticising the NHS:

Jeremy Hunt hits back:

Worth noting that Tory MPs and advisers are now openly talking about a Royal Commission on the future of the NHS…

Credit Where Credit’s Due

Theresa May has been claiming credit on Twitter for the new ban on credit card charges, even tweeting out this handy graphic about how “we” are responsible:

The ban is actually an EU-wide directive that has been imposed on the UK government. Nothing to do with Theresa May or the Tories.

We’ve fixed your graphic for you…

Top Ten Sweary MPs

According to the geeks at PoliMonitor Jess Phillips is the most foul-mouthed MP on Twitter:

  1. Jess Phillips (Labour) 39
  2. Angus MacNeil (SNP) 28
  3. Mike Gapes (Labour) 16
  4. Jonathan Reynolds (Labour) 12
  5. Dr Philippa Witford (SNP) 9
  6. Andrew Gwynne (Labour) 9
  7. Dawn Butler (Labour) 9
  8. Chris Bryant (Labour) 8
  9. Stella Creasy (Labour) 7
  10. Robert Syms (Conservative) 7

The SNP manage disproportionately to get 2 entries into the top 10, Robert Syms holds up the Tory end (just) in tenth place behind everyone’s favourite bit of posh profanity, Stella Creasy. The LibDems are nowhere to be seen. What does this tell us?

Stella’s Fake News

There has been a lot of political controversy about Twitter bots spreading fake news. Guido found another example of one yesterday. The government is actually planning to spend £127 billion on the NHS. Which is a lot more than the £3 billion being put aside for Brexit preparations. Stella is fake news….

Cringeworthy Rudd Memes Worse Than Activate

Last week The Times reported that three social media accounts promoting Amber Rudd have been set up by her supporters. Guido has been following their progress and can report that they have alas not gone viral. @VoteForRudd has attracted a total of 300 followers, pumping out memes that are more cringeworthy than Activate. This photoshop of the “Battle of Hastings re-enactment” got two retweets.

In fact, we’re probably being harsh on Activate. These Rudd graphics are worse:

The “Vote For Rudd” Facebook page is even more cringe, it has managed just 90 likes. Meanwhile on Instagram they’re mocking her up as a cheerleader and calling themselves the “Ruddettes“.

All in all it is not exactly #Moggmentum. The terrible accounts are being run by an anonymous blogger calling himself “Tory Boy 999“. He says:

“We need young people with a good knowledge of social networking to become keyboard warriors for the centre right. We are endeavouring to provide a range of useful resources and will be running this blog, an active instagram account and a YouTube channel. We encourage people to copy and paste, screenshot, share or reproduce any of these resources. We want to reach as many people as possible, target young people and reach new audiences.”

Is that you, Roland?
