Christmas cards from Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson have been landing on doormats in the last few days, bearing a message of thanks for hard work done in the cause of a Labour government.
But the cards have left recipients feeling not only underwhelmed, but also bemused:
The bemusement stems from the fact that the West Bromwich East MP, who is infamous for a hair-trigger when it comes to blocking anyone critical on Twitter, has blocked many of the recipients.
The SKWAWKBOX received one of the cards this morning, pictured above – apparently being sent to CLP chairs, vice-Chairs and Secretaries – but an attempt to open Watson’s Twitter profile suggests a different message:
Watson was contacted for comment on the mismatch. He has not responded.
Mr Watson’s profile says he has ‘no space for hate’ – although he once made time for Mail columnist Dan Hodges. He does, however, appear to have a room for conflicting messages to Labour members working hard to bring about a Labour government and helping to maintain the party’s social media dominance.
