The Daily Mail is a British tabloid. A conservative one, in fact. James Chapman is the paper's political editor and a self-proclaimed Tory, and has been tweeting Mitt Romney's visit to his country.

Somehow, I doubt this is what Romney was going for when planning the trip:

Eh? We don't need your advice thanks MT "@chrisshipitv: Romney: will Brits come together & celebrate? We'll only find out when Games begin"
Diplomacy Romney style: casts doubt on Britain's Olympic preparations; says last thing he wants is for US to be like Europe. Way to go Mitt!
Another Romney triumph as he forgets Ed Miliband's name: 'Like you, Mr Leader, I look forward to our conversation here this morning'.
Romney blunders again by revealing he's had (supposedly) top secret briefing by John Sawers, MI6 boss. Do we have a new Dubya on our hands?
Serious dismay in Whitehall at Romney debut. 'Worse than Sarah Palin.' 'Total car crash'. Two of the kinder verdicts #romneyshambles
Can this get any worse for Romney? Boris is now mocking him in front of 60,000 people in Hyde Park #romneyshambles
Another verdict from one Romney meeting: 'Apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humour or sincerity' #romneyshambles  #mitthitsthefan

Get him the hell out of the UK, stat! At this rate, we'll be at war by tomorrow noon.

And they might want to rethink that Israel visit ...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
