Judith Collins, National’s best performing politician, has dropped another bombshell about Phil Twyford. She has alleged that on the same day he took a call in a plane when the doors were closed he stood up out of his seat as the plane was taxiing.
He can’t recall it and does not accept it happened. But the trepid informer who told Collins about the telephone incident clearly thinks he or she has more dirt on Twyford.
When I heard this I was a rocked to my core and let out an uncontrollable “Meh“.
And I wondered why Collins thought this was such an issue that she would try and hog the media light two days in a row by drip feeding the details.
And what was coming next.
Twitter obliged when someone created the #twyfordaccusations hashtag. People had fun guessing what was going to be alleged next. Here are some of the better ones.
Twyford took two lollies from the lolly basket instead of one #TwyfordAccusations

The thing about the Twyford VS Brownlee breaches is that many of us might have done a Twyford once or twice in our lives, but none of us would ever do a Brownlee and charge through airport security doors. #TwyfordAccusations

I hear he illegally recorded a staff member and then used taxpayer money to try to cover it up…oh no that was Todd Barclay, John Key and Bill English…
