The Witchfinder has a silly season story.
It has not been a good few weeks for Vicky Foxcroft. The former Labour Student hack turned Unite hack was undoubtedly delighted to be selected for Lewisham Deptford but joy at her victory was far from universally shared. The ‘local’ candidate turned out to be none other than this Vicky Foxcroft – once hailed as the ‘power-dressed future’ of new Labour – a woman who has, if her linkedin page is to be believed, never worked outside a trade union or political environment since university.
That cheerful young woman who once seemed so sweet and kind to the Witchfinder in his heady university days, when we were both in Labour Students (there was a time before the Witchfinder saw the light) is long gone. Vicky has grown into a woman who bears an eerie physical resemblance to Harriet Harman even as her human spirit seems to have withered. It was in a whimsical, nostalgic spirit that the Witchfinder chose to view her appalling selection campaign website through nyanit.com . It is essential to do this with the sound on. For those of you who do not know, NYANIT is a simple ‘wrapper’ site – a bit like a web proxy it allows you to load any website with a special script that adds a magic ingredient. NYAN CAT!!!
