As a political party which prides itself on standing for British people with strictly British values it’s surprising that the BNP tweeted a heartfelt remembrance tweet almost a full 24 hours after the event.
‘Remember to observe the #TwoMinutesSilence at 11a.m. today. Others may forget but we remember.’
That was the tweet that was sent out at 6.50am this morning (November 12). It’s slightly ironic, and made them the target of ridicule on twitter earlier today, as in fact it wasn’t others that forgot, it was indeed them.
What was even more embarrassing for the party was that nobody even realised that somebody wrote the tweet almost a full day after the actual time of the two-minute silence – which is always held at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.
It was at 11.15am when someone finally realised the tweet had been sent out and they proceeded to remove it, after making up an excuse to reassure twitter followers that it was an issue with their phone and they were fully aware of when the real two-minute silence occurred.
