#dctxtspeak – Some of the best

11th May, 2012 12:53 pm

Today’s revelation that David Cameron signed off his texts to Rebekah Brooks with LOL (thinking it means “Lots of Love”), got people laughing on Twitter this afternoon. Here are some of the best examples of possible #dctxtspeak (so far):

  • ROTFL = Rupert’s On The Fone: Listening (@benkind)
  • QTWAIN: Question To Which Answer Isn’t Nadine (@reporterboy)

 

  • treborc1

    None of the Political parties come out of this well, except the Liberals and that’s because they were not important, lucky them.

    But she had a few things to say about Blair, she basically called Prescott a lier.

    But Blair and Brown chased her and then Cameron learning nothing did the same, so really labour will knock the Tories, the Tories will counter it, but really Labour and Tory were sucked into the money the power, the power which could virtually get a Party elected or not.

    Cameron being rich and educated thought LOL was Lots of Love, so did i for a few months until my daughter told me nope Lots of laughts

    • aracataca

      Not Brown apparently. 

      • treborc1

         As she said he was not important, which means he was on his way out, your only important when you have a power base.

        • aracataca

          Have another listen. Rebekah Brooks and Gordon Brown were sworn enemies.

          • Hugh

             I think your comment was cut short by the system: “Rebekah Brooks and Gordon Brown were sworn enemies, after the Sun switched support to the Tories

            There, fixed it.

          • derek

            No? Rebekah Brooks referred to the break up with Brown 2004, 2005 when he (GB) opposed the welfare reforms, Brooks was a self confessed Blairite at that point. 

          • treborc1

            But in reality it does not matter about Brooks does it, it’s Murdock.

          • aracataca

            Sounds like a partial climbdown Treborc. Brooks split from Brown in 2005. Correct?

          • Hugh

             Incorrect, as above.

          • Bill Lockhart

             Wrong. 2009. Bestest fwends prior to that.

          • John Ruddy

            I dont think Brown was ever bestest friends with them…. Blair, on the other hand…..

          • treborc1

             Did Brown have friends at all, he was we are told political astute so knew that the Murdock’s were his best mates when they backed him

          • treborc1

            No of course it’s not.

          • Hugh

            Well, as Brookes told the enquiry, she tried to ring Brown before the paper announced it was switching support: Mr Brown and his wife were due to come to the News International party that night and I wanted to get hold of them.

            The Chequers pyjama party which the Browns invited Brooks to, meanwhile, was in 2008.

            So, really, Yes?

          • Hugh

             2007…

          • Hugh

             2007…

          • treborc1

            Brown did what when on welfare.

          • treborc1

            Well yes from 2009, but that was due to the Sun turning from new labour back to the Tories. But what about before that.

          • Lee Matthews

             It looks like they were all in it together. Odd that a newspaper would change alliegence to the party that it thought would win the election. Governments chasing media favour and media chasing government favour. Sad that any Goverment thinks it’s policies are so bad that they wouldn’t get the win if they relied on them alone.

          • Jeremy_Preece

            No Lee
            I think that it is sad for democracy that the media can influnce enough voters to be able to swing and election one way or the other.
            For example, imagine what if the Evening Standard and other papers had turned on Boris and supported Ken. Clearly Ken would have won it.

            The real issue here is that Murdoch controls so much media in the UK, USA and other countries. No one person should be able to hold such sway, with no elected mandate and no accountability.

         You are suffering from that age old Labour problem of Amnesia. Before the Sun switched it’s endorsement to the Tories  Brown was very pally with the Murdoch empire and Brooks especially. He and his wife even held a pyjama party with Brooks.

    The Swedish code?

    I hope both Rebecca Brooks & David Cameron practiced ‘Safe Text’

  • Amber Star

    Did Dave say LOL to all the girls? Or will Leveson be a breeze compared to SamCam’s reaction?

  • MattWales

    Mr Cameron, you are the best Prime Minister ever. LOL.

    Here’s what happens when you search David Cameron’s name on Twitter today

    David Cameron’s desperate attempts to get out of debating Ed Miliband dominate today’s news, as his spin doctor Craig Oliver sends a petulant letter to broadcasters, telling them that the PM will only take part in one debate at the end of March – and only if the leaders of Labour, the Lib Dems, the Green Party, UKIP, the SNP, Plaid Cymru and maybe the DUP are all there too. Oliver’s huffy letter complains that the broadcasters have proved consistently willing […]

    Jim Murphy says Ashcroft poll “bad news for Scottish Labour but great news for the Tories”

    As we covered last night, yesterday’s Ashcroft polling showed Labour doing extremely badly in Scotland.   Of the five Labour seats polled north of the border, Ashcroft showed the party losing all but one – Jim Murphy’s seat East Renfrewshire. And the Scottish leader is only ahead by one point. Ashcroft also found Labour losing Kirkcaldy – the seat from which Gordon Brown is stepping down in May – where Labour were 50 points ahead of the SNP in 2010. […]

    It’s official: Cameron is a coward

    David Cameron says that he wants to debate Ed Miliband. And we believe him right? I mean it’s not like him to be disingenuous. To say one thing and do the opposite hoping a disengaged public won’t notice. Just look at that promise he made about NHS reorganisation. Or his deep and lasting pre-election commitment to “green crap”. But it’s not as simple as all that. With a character as slippery as our eel of a Prime Minister it rarely […]

    Blair donates to £1,000 to each of Labour’s 106 target seats

    Recently it was reported that Tony Blair would be playing a role in Labour’s general election campaign. It’s still not clear if that will happen (indeed our recent LabourList survey and polling suggested that would be a bad idea) but the former Labour leader has made a significant donation to the party – backing each of Labour’s 106 candidates in target seats with £1,000 each. The Guardian reports Blair as saying, in a letter to candidates: I know how hard it […]

    Latest Ashcroft poll shows Labour making ground in England – but facing wipeout in Scotland

    After the Ashcroft constituency poll of Scottish seats exactly a month ago I said that Scottish Labour is going down in flames, and taking Miliband’s chances of a majority with it. Today’s latest Ashcroft poll has done nothing to put out those flames, or suggest Scottish Labour is performing anything other than a catastrophic nosedive. Except now it almost feels like everyone has adjusted to the “new normal” whereby a Labour heartland is now a Labour wasteland. We’ll get back […]
