Joey Barton rages at Dietmar Hamann in latest Twitter meltdown


Joey Barton confirmed his lunatic credentials yesterday, continuously escalating a Twitter feud with Dietmar Hamann with a series of tweets accusing the German of smoking spliffs the night before matches and frittering his money away on cocaine and gambling.

The Marseille midfielder, dangerously unstable, blew his top when his former Manchester City teammate told him off for tweeting about about the transfer of Loic Remy to either one of his ex-clubs Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United. Some of the tweets have since been deleted, but this is apparently what was said…

Good luck to Loic in Newcastle. Don’t worry i’ve told him what to expect. Great guy. Perfect club for him. #toonarmy

This comes the day after he took on The Charlatans front man Tim Burgess in a debate about disability benefits…

Joey-Barton v Tim-Burgess

…which stemmed from these Barton tweets…

Great this twitter, its lets people whose mums work in farmfoods whilst claiming benefits, have a pop at successful folk like me? Brilliant.

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) January 12, 2013

My ‘farmfoods’ tweet offended lots o people. That delights me. Whilst I’m at it, claiming benefits isn’t a life choice. Get a job…

— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) January 12, 2013

The conversation in full unfolding as follows…

TB: Nice to see Joey Barton’s dropped the Nietzsche/ Morrissey quotes and is ordering people on benefits to ‘get a job’. Classy as ever ; )

JB: leave it Burgess…

TB: I just wish you’d use what you have to better effect sometimes. There’s a lot of people listening to you ; )

JB: I have enough about me to be able to form an opinion, about the society I see today. What am I to do? Tow the party line?

… you know as well as I do, that for a lot of people(not all) claiming benefits has become a life choice. Sad but true…

TB: Not at all. Having your own opinion & standing by it is hugely important. Knowing the full story regarding ‘benefits’ is too

JB: also Tim, if you actually seen the tweet it refers to, you’d of known the context, in which it was spoken. Read more/speak less

TB: < tbh I know more who are being forced to look for work despite disabilities – right wing press pick up on 'benefit cheats'

JB: 'benefit cheating' is not the core of my argument. It's 'benefits' as an alternative to a job, that concerns me.

… they refuse to do a job, that they deem is below them. So, decide to draw benefits till a good job comes along? I know plenty

TB: But I think that's less prevalent than is made out by the likes of The Daily Mail. They are turning people against each other

JB: have you ever thought why the ethnic demographic has,over a prolonged period of time, done so well in the UK? Prepared to graft

… I have stopped reading such things, as they only distort your view. All I know is what I've experienced 1st hand…

TB: Twitter is not the place for racial stereotypes, either positive or negative. It can all get a bit EDL quickly!

… You have lots of experiences that many will never have. Would be great to see you use that the advantage of many others

JB: love to continue this debate another day Timothy. Got a match to prepare for tonight. Gonna have to love you and leave you…

…in fact, pretty much everyone got stuck into Barton…

@joey7barton If I didn’t follow you how would I be able to pull you up on your flawed political rhetoric and spot your Googled quotes?

.@joey7barton claims to read Chomsky. Being a big fan of his works, I think old Chomskychops would say ‘read my stuff again, CAREFULLY.’
