Working for the Clampdown

Yes, I know I’ve stolen the title of Paul Smith’s blog, but he nicked the idea of using song titles from me, so we’re evens.

Nice little piece in the Mail at the weekend about an email sent to Tory MPs and election candidates, telling them that all their online utterances must be cleared by CCHQ first. Tories simply can’t be trusted to tweet.

There is, as we speak, a team of young Tobys, Tarquins and Taras at Tory HQ, under the supervision of a fanatical spinmeister, Toryquemada, scrutinising every draft tweet for signs of divergence from “The Line”. This perhaps might explain why so few tweets from Tory politicians make it onto Twitter; they’ve all failed the Tory inquisition. One wonders quite what they’re trying to hide?
