Staffer's Brutal Resignation Via 'Vile' Boss's Twitter Account
The communications manager of a British politician appears to have gone rogue, resigning with a sensational rant on the MP's Twitter account.
Gareth Arnold, who claims to be a former member of independent MP Jared O'Mara's constituency staff, labelled O'Mara the "most morally bankrupt person I have ever met."
"You do not care about your constituents. You do not care about anyone but yourself," he said in a series of Tweets on Wednesday.
"I cannot and will not defend you and your vile, inexcusable contempt for the people who voted you in. You selfish, degenerate pr**k," he continued.
After five very abusive tweets, Arnold signed off with a simple: "Consider this my resignation," adding his name and own Twitter handle to the bottom.
Fittingly, a mic drop GIF was in there as well.
The tweets receiving more than tens-of-thousands of like and retweets.
It's a resignation letter that will most likely stand the test of time and go down in history as one of the greatest ever.
But that wasn't the end of the fiery and very public confrontation.
Not only did Arnold retweet the entire thread from his own account, he continued to slam the MP for hours.
"He has just messaged me and he pays that little attention to anything that he's not even seen the tweet all of his constituents have. Unbelievable," he tweeted.

Finally, the game was over and he was logged out of O'Mara's account for good.
The stunt has been met with mixed reaction online.

One user called Arnold a "f**king legend," another said it was "bloody brilliant" while a third described the thread as "brutally awesome".
But some were extremely critical, calling Arnold "a mess," and the situation "quite tragic."
Others smelled a rat.
To give the feud a bit of context, O’Mara was a Labour MP who won the Sheffield Hallam seat against Nick Clegg in 2017.
He was suspended from the party following a string of misogynistic and homophobic comments he made online and as a result, in 2018 he quit and became an Independent instead.
Speaking to the BBC earlier this month, O'Mara said he would stand again in the next election despite the criticism.
"I am going nowhere, and I'm here for you whether you want me here for you or not," he said at the time.
