Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK government!)

An extraordinary online disagreement has emerged between the UK government and the Isle of Man government over leaflets which have been produced by Number 10 promoting Scotland remaining part of the UK.

Yesterday afternoon, Number 10 Downing Street tweeted this:

IOM and UK spat 1

But this morning, the official Twitter feed from the office of the Isle of Man Chief Minister, IOM Government tweeted this response to Cameron’s office:

IOM and UK spat 2


Is it only me finds it strange that the only official communication between the UK government and its Crown Dependencies seems to be via Twitter?

Or that nobody in the UK government seems to know what the UK is?

And is it only me finds the levels of amateurishness emanating from Cameron’s office truly embarrassing?


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
