Google outs Tory's dating preferences

Tory MP Gavin Barwell has had his embarrassing web browsing activities revealed to the world after a criticism of the Labour party backfired.

Barwell saw an advert aimed at those interested in dating Arabic people when he read a Labour party announcement. Believing Labour to be selling adverts to the dating sight he tweeted: “I know you are short of cash but having an invitation to ‘date Arab girls’ at the top of your press release?”

The Labour party press office then reminded him that the adverts are automatically generated by Google ads based on browsers’ interests.
