Well, you've got to laugh.
I've always thought Labour's self styled Twitter Tsar Kerry McCarthy MP was one vote short of a ballot box. Now she's proved it. This afternoon she wrote a couple of vaguely insulting Tweets about Total Politics, Shane Greer and myself. Big deal. I've had worse. But I decided to take her to task. And now she has blocked me on Twitter. Oh the pain.
The thing is, people actually elected this woman to represent them, yet she seems incapable of rational argument or debate. If you disagree with her she cries foul and accuses you of being nasty. And yet she doesn't understand it's her own brand of nastiness which causes people to react badly to her. From subsequent Twitters and emails I have received it seems I far from alone in being blocked by her.
She certainly does the Labour Party no favours.
UPDATE: LibDem twitterer Stephen Glenn puts it well when he reacts to Kerry's tweet saying she won't debate with me because I am not her "political equivalent". Hilarious pomposity.
UPDATE: @shanegreer has been in the phone in floods of tears. He doesn't know how he can continue his life. Kerry has blocked him too. He is bereft, ladies and gentlemen. Perhaps all those who have been blocked should form a mutual support group. :)
UPDATE: Channel 4 News have invited Kerry McCarthy and me on to their programme to sort out our differences. I've said yes, she's said no. Go figure.
