You couldn’t make it up! The penny has finally dropped that maybe the reason Labour are still behind May and the Tories in the polls is because of the abuse and harassment that is their strategy on social media.
Because of this, they are cancelling the youth wing of Momentum on Facebook because of abuse and harassment! So now on twitter, the abuse has stopped. The endless repetition of the same message over and over an nauseam is still being used, which is great for us. It is definitely a turnoff.
Show us the barren desert that is vile Labour tweeting, oh it is priceless. But Labour tweeters have little to work with. Labour has no inspirational policies.
They don’t have inspirational politicians, as we do, that we look at and think WOW they are at the top of their game, Brilliant communicators like Jacob Rees Mogg. Fighters like Zac Goldsmith and James Cleverly. Great ideas men like Jo Johnson and Michael Gove, Or the outstanding visionaries, like charismatic election winner Boris Johnson, who has every other quality too.
The very best commentators are Tory. Andrew Neil. Dominic Lawson. Nigel Lawson. Fraser Nelson. These men are worth ten of their counterparts. Labour’s regular spokesmen are people like Chuka Umunna, and Kevin Maguire, two men who use the same means as Labour tweeters as their weapons of choice.
I have always challenged the idea that Labour are great on social media. They aren’t, and I am on here every day. They are prolific yes. Organised yes. But their tweeting is based on abuse, endless boring repetition and harassment. Nothing else. None of those things gets you votes.
On social media, the Tories are not well organised. We don’t mindlessly parrot a message of the day. But, as the raggle taggle Brexit army showed, we have the will. We have the passion. We have the belief. Those things will always beat huge teams of paid robotic trolls with no heart, so to score a legendary win, it doesn’t even have to be our day.
