Damian McBride’s new book, Power Troll, looks set to scoop a handful of gongs at the Young Online Bully Awards, after he proved himself an inspiration to a rising generation of amoral psychopathic sadies.

‘When young people see political leaders acting like this, it sends a clear message to Britain’s youth,’ said the spirit of a Victorian baby farmer inhabiting the body of Alistair Campbell. ‘What we’re saying is, there’s always justification for being a bully. As long as you say politics is a dirty business, you can get away with anything.’
