Brislen and Robertson square off in unedifying spectacle on Twitter

Rent a quote and all round media whore Paul Brislen was trying to sell his PR services to Labour, but he had a serious SMOG.

Russell Brown and his leftie mates were discussing the lack of impact Labour is having in the GCSB story, and that yet again the Greens are the true opposition party.

Then Brislen’s over-inflated ego couldn’tthelp but get involved.

Followed up by a suggestion:


He then offers Grant Robertson some of his expert advice about getting better media coverage of the GCSB issue – implying that Robertson has done a crap job.


followed by;

Then Robertson gets wind of Brislen’s comments, and gets defensive.

But he’s quickly smacked down by Brislen.

The battle continues until Robertson suggests Brislen hasn’t got a clue what he’s talking about.

I wonder if Brislen’s employers would be happy to know the face of their organisation is saying “fuck you” to the deputy leader of the Labour Party.

Does Brislen actually spend time doing anything related to what his employers pay him for or does he just spend his time on Twitter trying to get better media coverage for Labour? Perhaps I should do a MentionMap so we can see where his true alliances are who he talks to or about the most.
