Wikipedia reveals Grant Shapps as the next Spiderman
Despite denying his involvement in secretly altering Wikipedia, the Conservative Party chairman has struggled to explain some of the more hyperbolic entries on his biography. Not only is he attributed with the ‘invention of the iWatch’ and scoring ‘30 goals for Tottenham Hotspurs’ but Mr. Shapps’ page also suggests that he once ‘had a second job’; all of which are clear fabrications.
Nice work! (Whoever did it)
The Wiki-tweaks scandal, is still gathering momentum, with Eric Pickles having to backtrack on the entry saying he was ‘a svelte 10 stone and smelt of lavender’. Likewise, many MP’s have complained that unflattering details have been added to their wiki entries; although in the case of Nick Clegg’s page, the truth is incriminating enough.
Creating fake online identities is often called ‘sock-puppetry’, not be confused with Ed Miliband’s ‘stock-muppetry’. Accusations by The Guardian newspaper call into question Mr. Shapps veracity and whether he really did ‘swim the Channel’, ‘bench press 1000 pounds’ and make Justin Bieber ‘pregnant’.
This is not the first time Mr. Shapps has been accused of playing fast and loose with the truth. Wiki notes refer to his name changes and pyramid schemes, but recently cite his spurious claims that he has seen naked photos of Emma Watson and footage of the new Star Wars movie. However, these all pale into insignificance compared to his repeated assertion that the Conservatives ‘are electable’.
