It is as if nothing had been learned from previous, very clearly coordinated, and all too easily debunked, social media excursions: the Tories selected their hill to die on - trying to smear new Labour leader Keir Starmer over his comments on NHS Personal Protective Equipment problems - and like the Boris bots on Facebook, and the Twitter applause for the PM, they duly died a death on it. Only this time, a lot of their MPs were involved.had done just that, telling “What a truly bizarre, carefully co-ordinated attack on Starmer this is”, and revealing very similar attacks from an account called Tory Health (shades of Tory Education, eh?), the disgraced Damian Grope, Milton Keynes North MP Ben Everitt, and Marcus Jones, who represents Nuneaton.went one better: he exposed yet more Tory MPs indulging in more or less the same smear. Gillian Keegan (Chichester), Helen Whately (Faversham and Mid Kent), Matt Warman (Boston and Skegness), Andrew Bowie (West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine), and to no surprise at all (yes, it’s her again) Nadine Dorries were also at it.
The MPs could of course hang their heads in shame. Except they probably don’t have any.
