Matthew Steeples celebrates getting blocked by Paul Nuttall on Twitter
When someone blocks you on Twitter, you know you’ve won. In the past, I’ve been cut off by an array of ‘delights’ ranging from the sofa loving sad sack Sir Christopher Meyer to the foaming-at-the-mouth firebrand George Galloway. Others joining that list include the blubbing blogger Jack Monroe and the pugnacious poet Pam Ayres, but the ultimate honour was bestowed yesterday when UKIP’s leader Paul Nuttall stopped me seeing his tweets.
In spite of offering much criticism of Nuttall’s predecessor during his tenure in the same position, Nigel Farage never blocked me and in carrying out such action Britain’s ‘King of Fake News’ – a man whose own website carried an invented stories about his involvement in the Hillsborough disaster – only confirms that he and his Kippers can’t take criticism and they can’t deal with debate. No wonder they’re about to face the chop.
