Another victim of Twitter

Twitter has claimed yet another casualty today with the news that the Shadow Attorney General, Emily Thornberry has resigned from that position after an ill-advised post on the social networking site.

The Times says that she went after posting a “derogatory” tweet showing a house draped in England flags with a white van parked outside under the heading 'Image from Rochester'.

As she lives in a £3 million house in Islington herself, naturally some party members, including John Mann, MP for Bassetlaw, thought she was being snooty and treating working-class voters “with contempt”.

Once more it is shown that as far as politicians are concerned no good comes of instant gratification and that when faced with the opportunity to express an instant opinion many lose all sense of good judgement.
