I could have saved this for the Daley Dozen, but I think you deserve a treat. The Ministry of Truth has ripped apart LabourHome, and in particular its poll of Labour activists, which has received so much publicity today. It turns out it was commissioned (and presumably paid for) by The Independent.
Brownite MP and Minister Tom Watson is none too pleased by Alex Hilton's antics. He calls him a "naughty boy", which translated means he's ******* ****, a sentiment many of us can easily concur with. It's easily forgotten that Hilton is a selected Labour Party candidate for Chelsea & Fulham at the next election. I wonder how long before he is officially hauled over the coals
Luke Akehurst has piled in too. He says: "Alex, Jag, you could not have been more unhelpful if you had tried. Try switching on your brains and thinking strategically about the future of the party before initiating these sort of publicity stunts."
Unity from the MoT ends his piece with these wise words...
So, Alex - now you’ve got your bit of investment from the New Statesman, either pull your finger out, sort it out, and turn it into something worthwhile or give it up, because in the state LabourHome is in at the moment, no one would miss it if it keeled over and died tomorrow…
…except Guido and the other Tories who must be pissing themselves over what a complete sucker you’ve been.
No (giggle), that's (smile) very (LOL) unfair (:) on poor Alex (LMFAO).I would love to link to LabourHome, but the site appears to have been taken offline. Wonder why.
UPDATE 2.16pm: LabourHome is back online.
