An MP has been left red-faced after he invited his Twitter followers to play Hello Kitty World with him.
Douglas Carswell, who defected from the Conservative Party to join UKIP last year, tweeted a photo of the children’s game with his apparent endorsement.
The bizarre post was picked up by the Conservative press office, which responded bluntly: ‘No thanks.’
He later blamed his five-year-old but admitted he thinks the game ‘is great’.
Then Mr Carswell realised something even more embarrassing…
Hello Kitty fail. The worst kind of fail.
