"stephen_gilbert was at meeting about regeneration of major town (declined by Tory PPC); Tory PPC at a publicity stunt (declined by me).... D***h***d!!!"
I was sent the comment below by a constituent who is privy to my opposition's Twitter emissions, which I am not. Apparently his asterisk'd comment is highly abusive.
The nature of the loss is particularly galling though. It's not that unusual to see a team arrive at White Hart Lane with the sole intention of defending and getting a draw - but Stoke actually started timewasting from the starting whistle. Let's just look at the key stats for the whole match:
And Spurs didn't play well enough, consistently enough, to be able to win - even with all those chance. It was a frustrating game and not an ideal warm up for the derby match next weekend. With Robbie Keane ineffective again, you can't help but think if Jermain Defoe had not been stupid last week he would have been the difference between good stats and a good result this week.
