Even on Twitter consistency is a ‘good thing’…

A friend once described the DUP as the kings of the message… a title long held and mostly well deserved (despite some flakiness during Peter Hain’s Shadow Assembly)… Ah, but the conversational Twitter platform which the party alongside Sinn Fein seems to be taking well to, offers a little too much temptation towards the proverbial ‘cheap shot’… So at 10.35am on the 20th March we have them lauding a visit by their leader Peter Robinson and Euro candidate Diane Dodds to a Sixth Form College; whilst (just 33 minutes earlier) dismissing a similar visit by their great rival and former MEP to a Catholic school as “using the school for political purposes”… Ah, so it’s only about “the importance of the political process & engagement” when ‘we’ do it lads? Beware, by yer ‘tweets’ ye shall be judged! H/T Ciaran!
