With apologies for running two Lib Dem presidential election stories in one day – I am trying to cut down – promise!
Remember Lembit claiming he was set to win because he had more members on his Facebook group than the other candidates? Of course, since anyone can join a Facebook group, it turned out that Mark Littlewood for one was only registered so he could get more information, and a large number of other people appeared to simply be members because they were nutty-bonkers students, it didn’t mean very much.
But it is pretty significant when even Lembit’s attempts at astroturfing pale away into insignificance compared to Ros’ attempts at recruiting actual supporters:
If I were running Ros’ campaign, I’d be on the blower to the BBC to insist they do a piece on this, for balance.
Oh, and don’t forget to join my new group.
