    Great hack - Owls for everyone!

    I love this to pieces. Not exactly a hack, more an account hijack, but hey!: BBC News - Labour calls for 'owl for everyone' after Twitter hack


    Labour insiders say their press Twitter account was hacked after the party appeared to commit to providing everyone in the country with an owl.

    The Labour press team account posted the message: "Everybody should have his own owl."

    Won't Hogwarts be upset that Labour are devaluing the Ordinary Wizarding Level?

    I'd prefer a moose. It's good but it's not quite carling.

    Radio 4's Today programme started this morning with this story as one of the main headlines, along with "Goverment aims to level playing field for state school PE". I had visions of a country-wide programme of lawn rollers being dished out the schools, possibly delivered by large flocks of Owls.

    at least unlike most political promises its measurable if they attain it or not rather than just changing the metric to show that they have done x, blaming the last lot, ignoring the question or just flat out lying

    "The reason we are unable to fulfill our promise to provide everyone with an Owl is because of the years and years of under investment in Owl provision by the last administration"
