In no particular order, some tweets from those in Wellington with the book.

Wrong on so many levels. How in the hell did she get to be a politician? So useless at doing anything effective.

I sense a court case coming up. I was aware of the PR firm that was paying Slater to leak private information. I guess that will be in the book.

Speaking of more that is illegal.

Quoting from the crass and smelly arsecrack of the NZ blogosphere about the newly homeless of Christchurch

The observant

The humorist

And Michael Wood.,,, Is this the example you want to give to your new constituents? Honesty will be a strange thing for them in recent years.Please continue.

    I had this wee moment of unadulterated glee earlier with these two tweets. Haven’t enjoyed politics this much in a bloody long time.

    This picture. I see no reason why we shouldn’t take turns tweeting it for the next six weeks.

    And then there is the way two candidates for National – Clutha and Hutt South – were laundered through the same corporate affairs job at a tobacco company. To provide each of them real world business experience before a return as MP’s as they had gone to parliamentary staff roles after leaving university.

    Is working for this business one way National patch new gang recruits – does it demonstrate they have the right stuff?

    Love this tweet from someone-

    ‘ Colin Craig reportedly furiously phoning lawyers after being excluded from Hagar’s book’

    So Slater celebrates the death of West Coasters

    and says “Fuck Christchurch” and is glad the scum in the east are gone

      I suspect that if Slater ever goes to Christchurch, he’ll probably go home in a bucket.

    Will Key comment on the phonecall when he reassured Slater that he shouldn’t feel bad about upsetting the mother of the ‘feral’ who died?
