Croydon MP Gavin Barwell in "Arab girls" Google blunder

TORY MP Gavin Barwell's attempt to slam Labour for making money off a "date Arab girls" web-link backfired - when it was revealed the advert was targeted at his computer. The Croydon Central MP took to his Twitter account, after he clicked on a link tweeted by the Labour party and found the dating advert. He tweeted: "I know Labour are short of cash but having an invitation to 'date Arab girls' at top of your press release?" But it soon became clear that the advert had appeared through Google Adsense, which tailors adverts based on the computer user's "interests". Since Labour members cited Mr Barwell's faux pas over the weekend, he hasn't made any further reference to the issue. He has, however, since tweeted about a visit to Quest Academy, Catherham School, and canvassing in Woodside. Mr Barwell is a keen Twitter user and engages in regular debates with his political rivals and constituents on the social media site. His Twitter use has previously landed him in hot water however. On one occasion, Mr Barwell was criticised for calling a Croydon activist a "loon".
