Deputy PM Green’s SpAd tweeted topless pic to Harman, Burley

As the SKWAWKBOX covered on Saturday, deputy PM Damian Green messed up the tweet of his strongly-worded denial of accusations of ‘extreme’ pornography on his parliamentary computer – by tweeting an uncropped screen-capture showing an email of the denial sent to him by his SpAd (special adviser) – raising the possibility that the denial had been written for him rather than by him.

It also revealed the name of his SpAd: one Dylan Sharpe – former Head of PR for the S*n.

Mr Sharpe himself became the subject of headlines almost three years ago – for sending a picture of a topless woman to news presenter Kay Burley and Labour MP Harriet Harman.

Not by accident. Intentionally – as a joke, as he later claimed. Ms Burley’s put-down was prompt:

Mr Sharpe was forced to apologise for his behaviour, but derision toward his actions  was immense, including an article mocking the self-pitying nature of the apology. Whether his actions had anything to do with him no longer being at the S*n is not known, but it was a big misstep for a ‘Head of PR’.

So much for Mr Sharpe.

But what does the fact the he was subsequently employed by the Deputy Prime Minister, from the public purse – and may be helping him defend himself against accusations of inappropriate behaviour toward women – say about attitudes among Tory ministers and MPs?

  1. According to Tom Newton Dunn of the Currant Bun, Theresa May and her Chancellor Phillip Hammond aren’t speaking to one another..

    Dear oh dear, how long do we have to put up with this shambolic government for?

  2. You couldn’t make it up.
    And the tragedy is, not one of them has the guts or the brains to put an end to this sordid, farcical waste of space that calls itself ‘government’.
    I despair.

  5. What else do these idiots have to get away with? How much longer are they gonna continue to show just how out of touch with reality they absolutely are, before people start openly demonstrating their thorough disapproval – In a way they’ll have no choice but to understand?

    This, fracking, ignoring the courts, calling the UN liars, calling the EU liars, ignoring EU laws, abusing ONS official figures etc etc etc

    It’s gone beyond a p1$$-take.

  6. Oh, I forgot the UC rollout, and failure to vote in opposition motions. I’m sure there’s plenty of other things, too.
