‘Bigot’ causes Twitter storm for Brown

Amidst claims of Gordon Brown calling a 66-year-old grandmother “a bigoted woman”, a Twitter account has been created in her honour and #bigotedwoman has been trending ever since.

The homage to Gillian Duffy, the subject of the PMs slur, has had thousands of Re-Tweets after the comment was made public yesterday.

Brown had been campaigning in Rochdale when Gillian nipped out for a loaf of bread, saw him and addressed her concerns about the number of immigrants in the area.

The pair appeared to part in a civilised fashion yet Brown’s comment to aide Justin Forsyth calling her “a bigoted woman” was recorded by the mic he was wearing for the televised campaign.

The last live pre-election debate is aired at 8:30 on BBC1 tonight and let us hope Brown’s mic is on as Cameron and Clegg are sure to address’loaf-gate’.

Bad times, Brown.
