Tory MP Ben Bradley is fast becoming the biggest loser on the internet. The biggest loser.
Scrapbook revealed on Monday that Bradley’s grovelling apology to Jeremy Corbyn over his spy lie had been shared more than every tweet from the Tory party’s official account in 2018 combined.

And we pointed out that the tweet was closing in on a terrific new record.
Bradley’s apology, which he tried to slip out after 10.30pm on Saturday, had been shared 47,000 times by Monday morning.
Donald Trump’s most popular tweet in February had been shared 52,000 times:
“You had Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party try to hide the fact that they gave money to GPS Fusion to create a Dossier which was used by their allies in the Obama Administration to convince a Court misleadingly, by all accounts, to spy on the Trump Team.” Tom Fitton, JW

Bradley has now smashed through that barrier, amassing almost 54,000 retweets at the time of writing. It’s out of control.
The next target has to be Trump’s most popular tweet of 2018 – his infamous ‘my buttons bigger than your button’ boast which got 191,000 retweets:
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

In the words of Ben Bradley: “Please retweet”
