Lynton Crosby’s business partner says Australian broadcaster giving Tom Watson “a giant blow job”

27th August, 2013 9:16 am

As Michael Gove plans to read out the latest missive from the Lynton Crosby playbook today, over in Australia his business partner Mark Textor is showing another side of their campaigning style – by accusing Australian broadcaster ABC of giving Tom Watson “a giant blow job” for having the temerity to interview him. A few hours ago, Textor tweeted:

textor blow job

He’s also attacked Tony Blair as a “wanker” in the last few hours too, but it’s been Watson who has borne the brunt of his anger.

Presumably he didn’t enjoy Watson’s LabourList post about him…?

    We appear to be on the verge of military intervention in Syria and this is top of Labour List’s news agenda today !!!

    I’m surprised that Textor knows how to spell ABC to be honest. Eeek.

    If Labour is to govern well, it needs to be a movement again

    The Labour party is not a staid, safe and secure party ensconced in Westminster. It is not enshrined in a single man or woman. It is not hidden away behind bricks and mortar. It is not a piece of writing on a card, a book of rules or a group of MPs in parliament. The Labour party is a movement – perhaps the greatest and most successful movement for justice and social change that Britain has ever known. It is rooted in […]

    Tory wobbles

    Speed kills. In an election campaign taking place in an ever-faster news cycle, with over-reaction piled on top of over-reaction, it will be hard to separate true facts from dramatic but misleading noise. Opinion polls will be at the heart of this process. Daily trackers and ramped-up instant reaction surveys will proliferate. Even as I started writing this last night, the latest ComRes poll (four point Con lead) came as a reminder not to get over-excited about any single poll […]
