A Twitter thread by a Labour member who took the time to listen to a programme on radio station LBC on consecutive days has revealed an unmissable example of the stark imbalance in the handling of the leaders of the UK’s two major parties that is typical ‘mainstream’ media coverage.
But it has also yielded a list comprising many of the key terms used by centrist “people’s vote”/’FBPE’ groups in their attempts to damage Labour electorally.
Those terms betray the motivations of the PV/FBPE mob – but they also provide a useful ‘block list’ for Twitter users who want to prevent or reduce the pavlovian and often bot-driven attempts to clutter every positive Labour thread with inane and clearly coordinated comments:
There is a concerted push among the left to block Twitter accounts using the #FBPE hashtag to free time and resources for Labour’s positive message and to prevent the usual centrist tactic of trying to bog down positive threads.
Many will now be adding some of the words and phrases above, too.
