Defence Secretary and Staffs MP Gavin Williamson makes Instagram porn blunder

Defence Secretary and South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson made an embarrassing porn blunder on Instagram.

Posting a tired-looking selfie on the photo-based social media site, he wrote: “This is what you look like when you have been traveling all through the night, and everything is so busy when you get back to the UK, it is fair to say I am knackered!”

However, eagle-eyed followers noticed Mr Williamson had included a seemingly innocent hashtag ‘#bed’.

Whilst innocent on face value, when clicking the hashtag Instagram users are greeted with pages of pornographic and sexually suggestive images.

The top rated image at the time was a naked man sprawled out on a bed.

Mayoress of Woking Hannah Thompson pointed out the awkward mistake to Mr Williamson MP.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson included the hashtag #bed in his recent post. He quickly removed the tag.

On Instagram, she wrote to the Defence Secretary: “10/10 would not recommend clicking through on the hashtag ‘bed’”.

The Defence Secretary responded red-faced, writing: “Oh dear, might edit my post. Thanks for the heads up!!”.

The post was edited soon after, removing the hashtag.

Twitter users have been quick to make fun of Mr Williamson MPs latest selfie, describing it as a “thirst trap” – slang meaning a photograph posted to get compliments and kind messages from followers.

Guardian journalist Chris Godfrey jokingly described it as having a “Sunday morning ‘really hungover, what you up to?’” vibe.

Political commentator Jane Merrick replied: “What time do you call this?” – mocking the pose the Defence Secretary gives in his selfie.

Conservative Party MPs have long been ridiculed for their ‘awkward’ use of Instagram, notably since the official Party account posted strange behind-the-scenes shots during their Conservative Party Conference in Manchester last year.

Earlier this year, a Conservative Party memo showed Party chiefs briefing Tory MPs on “how to look like real people”.

Another read “how to be playful” on Instagram in a bid to boost their younger voting base.

The memo used Mr Williamson’s Instagram posts twice as “good examples” for other Tory MPs to seek inspiration from.
