A Twitter account called Blue Labour has apparently seen a spike in their Twitter followers after the election.

It's unclear exactly what Blue Labour does, but it claims to be a Labour pressure group which supports "values of equality and social justice", while also supporting nebulous concepts such as "family values", limiting free movement and, errr, "growth in ownership and management of football clubs by supporters’ trusts". Nope, us neither.

The group calls itself "culturally conservative", which is making people think they just oppose any kind of social progress.

Some, including actor Mara Wilson, have pointed out that it all sounds eerily familiar.

It's unclear how popular the group really is, but it currently has more than 17,000 followers on Twitter.

While the tweet was very much ratioed, there was *some* backing for their views, most of which seem to go along the lines of "Boris Johnson said racist things and won, maybe we should try the same?"

Needless to say, we're not vibing this particular strategy...
