Newshub Nation Sinks to New Low — The BFD

I was surprised to see Judith Collins on Newshub Nation. I understood that she had decided not to appear because the interviews rarely cover issues important to the viewers. I am now aware that subsequent to that decision, Judith’s chief press secretary was contacted by the producer of Newshub Nation promising a wide-ranging interview on…

A Media Hit Job on Judith Collins — The BFD

The UMR poll deliberately released last week appeared designed to be a hit job on Judith Collins. Most of the press releases carried the headline ‘Unprecedented poll result as David Seymour overtakes National leader Judith Collins in new UMR poll’. According to UMR this was ‘unprecedented’, a statement proved incorrect by David Farrar. He says…

How Refreshing: The Truth — WOBH | Media

 

How refreshing it is to have a politician speak plainly and truthfully about where the issue really lies. National MP Judith Collins has attacked suggestions of institutional racism at Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry for Children. “It’s a real insult to the social workers who work so hard to try and keep children safe,” Collins said…

The leader matters — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

The debate about whether, when or if Judith Collins should become the leader of the National Party continues, particularly on Whaleoil.

Yesterday MP Judith Collins asked Phil Twyford some very serious questions about some of the new State houses in the McLennan Development in Papakura.

The Government used the first couple take possession of a KiwiBuild house in a publicity promotion for their policy. Then an uproar erupted over criticising KiwiBuild, using the couple as an example.

Now Mallard clubs the endangered Twyford’s seal — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

Judith Collins clubbed Phil Twyford so hard this week that Trevor Mallard felt he needed to get in on the act as well. Yesterday in the house he made a ruling that absolutely castigated Phil Twyford for his condescending, smart alec, sexist replies to Judith Collins’ written questions: Quote: The Speaker has reprimanded Housing Minister…

Tova O’Brien writes at Newshub on Friday: Quote: “They should get in behind me.” That was Judith Collins’ message to her colleagues when she ran for the National Party leadership.

Phil Twyford must really hate Fridays. Every week he gets kicked in the balls by Judith Collins and the silly, sanctimonious fool doesn’t realise it: Quote.

Matthew Hooton writes at NBR: Judith Collins is obviously the best candidate to lead National in opposition but she will be trounced on Tuesday. Stockholm Syndrome afflicts the National caucus.
