Wants privacy on Twitter
The missus of a British politician is incandescent with
rage over the antics of site which monitors MPs' movements.
EyeSpyMP runs all the twitters of local politicians which
can lead to a lot of personal information being leaked to the great unwashed
about them. Commons Speaker's wife Sally Bercow has complained about
being featured on the site. While it
might be ok for MPs who are public figures, Bercow does not think she is one.
She wrote on her her page of the Twitter social
networking site: "I am not an MP. I just live here. So stop reporting my
movements." The owner of the site has replied that Bercow Twitters
her movements far more than normal people and she must love the limelight.
EyeSpyMP has reported sightings of Mrs Bercow drinking
coffee and playing with her daughter. We
would have thought it was like watching paint dry. Bercow is however not exactly an innocent bystander. She
is standing for Labour in Westminster in May's local elections.
When rebuffed, she adds: "You are not being v. nice.
You are clearly a bunch of Tories."
Bercow's husband John was a Conservative MP before being
elected Speaker last year. Her page tells of her political views and daily life
inside and outside the Speaker's Westminster Palace apartment.
