No 10 Downing Street must upgrade its social media team


It is understandable that all parts of the Government like the rest of society will make some mistakes. Indeed many people would argue that the Government is constantly making mistakes. However the actions of the Prime Minister are clearly a vital part of the way in which the social media team in No 10 Downing Street should be informed. His actions and behaviour should inspire rather than conflict with their marketing activity. So this tweet was published at 6.11pm on Wednesday evening. Clearly the claim that a Gathering of more than 30 people is illegal does not make any sense if this is intended to be clear to a nation where for example most of the theatres and a number of restaurants are providing space for far more than 30 people to gather. By the same token if the Parliament involves a gathering of 50 people at the moment and if many work locations involved gatherings of far more than 30 people such a claim needs to be corrected. However in the meantime, the fact that the Prime Minister had gathered with 50 Backbench Tories in a room about two hours before this tweet is very disturbing. Even worse that the door of the room states clearly that no more than 29 people should use the room demonstrates that a serious problem has occurred. Perhaps my starting point is a mistake, perhaps the real problem is in the actions of the Prime Minister! If you want to read more about this case check out this article in Bloomberg.
