Labour Just Accidentally Tweeted A Promise To Give An Owl To Everyone In The Country

#ForHardworkingOwls

Posted on

It's a policy that cuts through to the wider population and could prove key in marginal seats:

Quite liked the labour non policy. Would quite like to own an Owl! #OwlsforLabour

Not quite sure having an owl should qualify as a universal benefit, but it probably would win over a few voters for Labour

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you. Then you offer them an owl.

Some people started costing the pledge.

Assuming they’re talking barn owls, @UKLabour’s “one owl for everyone" policy would cost about ਵ.1 billion

The country's finest minds are already working out how to market the policy:

But will Ed deliver? RT @labourpress: Everybody should have his own owl

Why is this Tory-led government so out of touch when it comes to owls?

This is the owl video that Labour tweeted as proof of their policy's credentials.

Legions of Labour supporters are hoping this policy will end the #CostOfOwlingCrisis and was not just an accidental tweet by someone in the press department who doesn't know how to use Hootsuite.

Labour has now pulled the policy.

We had hoped our compulsory owl guarantee would be a head turning policy, but sadly it's no longer going to take flight. #tweettwoo
