Last night our time the UK was waking up to the first new day of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party. PM David Cameron lost his shit, in what will I think become one of the most (in)famous political tweets of all time:
The Labour Party is now a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family's security.
— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) September 13, 2015
It is worth clicking through to read the first reply alone. Meanwhile in the real world, since the Corbyn announcement new members have been flocking to UK Labour…
Since Jeremy Corbyn has become Labour leader, approximately 24 people have joined EVERY MINUTE.
A democratic revolution is occurring.#Marr

Backup image of the Cameron tweet:
lprent updated 0820: The Independent is reporting more than 15,000 have become full members of the UK Labour party since the election of Corbyn. Perhaps Cameron just means that having a clear alternative is going to cause problems for his security?
.@UKLabour membership now over 325,000 and rising. A warm welcome to the 15,500 who have joined in the last 24 hours.
