Rule Twittania: An ironic phrase indicating realisation that the New Media doesn’t always live up to expectations

Frankly I am a bit sick of everyone involved in this election.

Clegg and the Orange Book liberals are stitching up their activists who despise the thought of a coalition with the Tory party.

Brown has led Labour to their worst result since 1983.

Cameron appears to be immovable on electoral reform in a country crying out for it.

Our Press have probably taken the biscuit with their over-inflated sense of importance and utter removal from the material facts of the situation.

Twitter is a source of constant information which made election night all the more exciting but it also has a spectacularly high noise to signal ration.

The Civil Service however, have come out of this pretty well but of course at the expense of everyone else.

Here’s Sir Gus O’Donnell in February this year:

O’Donnell said he had decided to publish his guidance now to ensure there was clarity before the election. But he said he doubted that financial markets would be destabilised by a hung parliament.

So that is a no to financial market panic. In fact, it is a fairly polite nod to the efficient market hypothesis.

The Daily Mail and The Telegraph scent panic, their product  and pounce. They just know Sir Gus was wrong.
