Over at Paul Rowen MP - News we have another unfortunate juxtaposition (screengrab, above) and we happen to know that an anonymous comment has been submitted. In fact we typed it in ourselves. But knowing our own words may well get binned unread - for some reason - and won't even get the classic Hennigan furious riposte any longer, we're anonymising it in plain view.
We feel it is vital to warn PR Paul Rowen that this is a major PR fail. What would happen if the papers got hold of this flaunting of champagne in the face of the jobless of Rochdale? Could the constructively dismissed Parliamentary Researcher Alex Webster have had mischief in mind when she filed the picture? Here's a sample of the sample of the text that captions the picture of champagne Paul, quaffing while Rochdale town centre fails:
Paul Rowen said: "My biggest concern about these new figures is the percentage of young people that are not in education, employment or training. It is simply unacceptable.
And here's LOL's "anonymous" comment on the same:
What a ridiculous photo to illustrate a "bad times" item. So here's some bad unemployment figures and some bad youth NEET figures too. And here's Paul Rowen swilling champagne. Come back Dave, all is forgiven. You'd have never allowed this wassive PR fail.
