Linking to this article may seem redundant, considering #CameronMustGo was forcibly removed from Twitter’s trending list earlier today (Monday).
However, Paul Bernal makes excellent points about the origins of this social media phenomenon, along with the other big grassroots political hit, @Trumpton_UKIP.
Although the current targets are right-wing establishment figures (oh yes you are, UKIP!), he provides a timely warning to Labour that the social media, being driven by the general public, could turn on the Left (or at least, a less right-wing party) at any time.
And he tells us: “If there’s one thing #CameronMustGo and Trumpton has shown, it’s that it’s the people that count, not the parties. And long may that last.”
So please, give it a visit.
