Lineker has become a bit of a plonker. Neither point is relevant, but wot the hell. JuliaM May 26, 2017 at 12:18 pm God bless the Internet – inventively deflating egos one supercilious little prick at a time. Pers May 26, 2017 at 1:38 pm By internet standards this happened two years ago, Tim. Old news. Cynic May 26, 2017 at 1:55 pm I thought Savile’s reputation had been tarnished enough. Now he’s being associated with that twat Lineker. The Inimitable Steve May 26, 2017 at 2:03 pm This is nearly as horrifying as AC Grayling’s Twitter feed. The Inimitable Steve May 26, 2017 at 2:13 pm Have any of you good people (or Dave) seen “The New European”? It’s like news from some sort of alternative timeline where the oppressed British masses are crying out for more Europe. Also, it seems Michael Heseltine’s hair has found a new host. tomo May 26, 2017 at 2:45 pm OT but it has economics in it …. and climate change … and some creative accounting … and – I suspect, some smoke and sparks eventually… BH post / comments Stick Nern – Credit Where It’s Not Due Tractor Stats do not add up. tomo May 26, 2017 at 2:47 pm Shame there wasn’t time to use the Walkers selfie app there… Bloke in Costa Rica May 26, 2017 at 3:55 pm It’s like these people have Alzheimer’s. Did no-one on the coding team for this app raise the point with the technically-illiterate mong who thought it up that sites with uncurated, publically-sourced content will always, always be hijacked by ne’er-do-wells? It is an immutable law of the universe. Someone needs a P45 and a kick in the arse. Chris Miller May 26, 2017 at 4:32 pm @BiCR They probably did point it out and were told to shut up and get on with the code monkey work. You can always tell a marketing manager, but you can’t tell him much. Jonathan Abbott May 26, 2017 at 7:15 pm As a Marketing Manager, you can tell me anything you like. I just won’t listen. Bloke in Costa Rica May 26, 2017 at 7:39 pm This is why I adopt a policy of nullus in verba when asked to do mongish things by marketmongs. CYA memos are very useful things to bring to the post-mortem. Pcar May 26, 2017 at 7:46 pm @dearieme, May 26, 2017 at 11:49 am Walker’s crinkle-cut crisps are very good.

Tesco crinkle-cut crisps are very good too – 85p for 6 pack . @JuliaM, May 26, 2017 at 12:18 pm +1 Project was doomed to fail – Microsoft’s twitter bot is case study. john77 May 26, 2017 at 11:03 pm @ TIS When the “New European” started it had some news in it so I read it for a few weeks/months but I just couldn’t keep it up. I actually read the “Daily Worker” for longer. Bloke in Lower Hutt May 27, 2017 at 2:41 am Judging by the amount of exposure this campaign has now got I say well played to the Marketing Manager. Nemo May 27, 2017 at 10:05 am I’m with Jabba: even if it wasn’t the marketing droids’ intention, this might still count as a win. After all, it’s got everyone here talking about it and dearieme even giving a personal recommendation of Walkers’ product. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
