Apart from Winnie. Which party will it be? Who else in NZ will jump on the "Fake-news" bandwagon  to try and maximize that little bit of imagined extra "influence and support," through mindless repeats of idiotic twitters to try and influence us?

If he's excluded because you have expectations he might be the nuttiest candidate - take a look at his twitter stream:

It's relatively concise and remarkably coherent.

 

Note that I'm not saying this as an endorsement - but if he's our "Trump", NZ is a damned good place.

With all due respect, I find Twitter boring. If they (Twits/Tweets) cannot stand up and say what they feel in a coherent and concise manner, then they are not worth listening to. Old school, I know. But a tweet is no more than a statement. Nothing more, nothing less - just "today".

It took you 282 characters with spaces to say that.  Fail!
