Is Trevor on secondment in the UK?

The master of Social Media Own Goals (SMOG) in New Zealand is Trevor Mallard. He marshalled the online forces of Labour to hand John Key victory online in the recent election. He must have passed on some of his expertise to Labour in the UK:

Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, has bungled the simple task of sending a tweet to mark the death of Bob Holness, the host of Blockbusters.

Mr Holness died peacefully in his sleep early this morning aged 83.

A message posted from Ed Miliband’s Twitter account read: “Sad to hear that Bob Holness has died. A generation will remember him fondly from Blackbusters.”

The message was hastily deleted, and re-written to correctly refer to the 1980s trivia quiz as “Blockbusters”.
