Raoul Moat: Siobhan O’Dowd Shows Jealous Tabloids How Social Media Works

by | 16th, July 2010

MORE news on Siobhan O’Dowd, the 21-year-old, unemployed single mum from Burnley who managed to create a Raoul Moat website with 38,000 fans in just a few days from her own home. You’d think the tabloids would give her a job as their head of social media. But, no. They are jealous of her appeal of crass stupidity and want to do her down.

Sky News says O’Dowd took down her site that “lured 38,000 supporters” (or not). Lured? As the Collins English Dictionary defines:

verb To lure someone means to trick them into a particular place or to trick them into doing something that they should not do. (=entice)

O’Dowd Facebook page was called “RIP Raoul Moat You Legend“. It lured in people looking for porn, news on football transfer rumours and fashion tips. If she lured, then the tabloids advertised.

As with all media success stories, the original has been copied.

We’ve told you about RIP Raoul Moat!, and now know of – “so that the legend that is Moat lives on.”
It’s interactive:

“Tazerd in the soaking rain, after sitting there for six hours you decide who killed him.”

Was it Cock Robin with his bow and arrow? The Red Baron? Al Qaeda? Noel Edmonds?

While you puzzle that, you can tune in and listen to This Is For Moat, a YouTube rap. Lyrics:

“Same old stitch up, police talking shit, forgot to mention they shot him with a Taser first, fuck the police.”

What utter bastards the police are for using non-deadly weapons man on an armed holding a deadly weapon he had used with deadly force.

Says RetroAnth, the song’s creator:

“This Tribute is not based on Raoul being a Hero or a Legend in anyway, This Tribute is a way of explaining what was going through his head at the time.”

Hands up anyone who knows what was going through Raoul Moat’s head at the time he shot himself in the head? Anyone any ideas?
