Clare Curran at Red Alert is focusing on the issues that really matter to New Zealanders – how some of John Key’s followers on Twitters may be “ghosts”.
Labour’s theory is that the PM may have been “buying” followers!
Yes I can just see the Cabinet meeting. Let’s not talk about the economy, or government debt, or the Christchurch earthquake. Instead they are no doubt discussing how to increase the number of followers John Key has on Twitter. Presumably 1% of the asset sales proceeds go towards purchasing these ghost followers!
Next I await the expose on Red Alert that John Key is not in fact personally friends with all his Facebook friends!
UPDATE: It gets better. Clare has done a second post on the issue, demanding an answer into the question:
how did John Key acquire nearly 30,000 bogus followers?
I hope Labour pursue this vital issue in the House next week. I urge them to devote all their oral questions to this issue. They should not rest until they get a Royal Commission of Inquiry established into this pressing issue.Tags: Clare Curran, John Key, twitter
