From a strong field, the political gaffe of the day award goes to Merseyside MP Esther McVey, for posting a political attack tweet during the Hillsborough 25th anniversary service.
In the as yet un-deleted tweet, the employment minister tweeted a link to a press release on her website entitled “Wirral Labour can’t be trusted.”
The ill-timed message coincided almost exactly with Andy Burnham’s moving speech at the service, held at Anfield.
It took Radio 5Live’s Nicky Campbell to point out the incredibly poor timing of the tweet for an MP from Merseyside.
Scrapbook assumes a grovelling apology is to follow shortly.
