- They try *so* hard…
Somewhere somebody worked out that people are more inclined to believe politicians of you can feel they are real people. Politicians are now trying to be more like real people who eat etc. Twitter means they can be. Now people decide that everything they do is a cynical attempt to engage.
The real sad thing is that real voters answered the questions that lead to people taking photos of themselves having lunch. The cult of celebrity and personality over substance has taken hold. The politicians are not the bad guys in this one, it’s the dumb idiots that don’t listen to the policy and decide based on opinion but what they are spoon fed by lazy tabloids/gossip columns.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
I’ve just got back from a three day trip down the smoke. I got pulled up on my expenses when I got back.
“It says here you spent £6.27 in Kensington tesco’s but I can’t find the evening meal claim.”
“That is the evening meal claim. Big pasta bowl, crisps, drink of orange, chocolate bar.”
I could see the accounts lady stroking her chin and wondering why we have a 30 quid a night meal allowance for London.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
To be fair to Osbourne, he doesn’t generally do the cringeworthy Man of the People routine that Call me Dave attempts. Hey I really like the Smiths! And I once eat a pasty. Have you seen my Converse trainers! I’ve been to Cornwall for my holidays.
Anyway. At least the burger wasn’t made from minced babies!

To be fair, he’ll probably claim it back on expenses.
I’m a little concerned with this tweeting stuff myself. I can understand someone would be following Jennifer Anniston or David Beckham but why on earth anyone would be remotely interested in watching a fat politician eat a salad is utterly beyond me. It’s PR and surely…SURELY the only people who watch politicians tweets are other politicians and the media. Anyone else who is even vaguely interested in the minute detail of these people’s lives needs medical help.Posted 4 years agomolgripsSubscriber

That’s the big problem with public life. You simply can’t win whatever you do, so they have to spend 90% of their time farting about trying to get people on their side, which doesn’t leave much for actually working on running the country.Posted 4 years agoanotherdeadheroMember
Mr Pickles posted the photo … on Twitter … Mr Osborne responded to the picture writing: “Nice one Eric.”
Nick Clegg, after he was asked when he had last bought a burger … added that the main reason for their choice of eaterie was his children’s desire for one of their milkshakes.
IS THIS NEWS?
ABSOLUTELY FRIKKIN NOT 😡
Blow by blow accounts of Twitter conversations and which milkshakes Nick Clegg’s children prefer are no interest or consequence whatsoever. Do some frikkin reporting you lazy hacks!Posted 4 years ago
