Update: @whaledump Suspended/ Long live @Whaledump2

This morning Twitter suspended the Whaledump account. I’m sure Nationals and Whaleoil’s boys are working overtime to stem the flow of information the voting citizens of New Zealand need to make up their minds.

Tightening the noose around our necks because they are stupid? Yeah right!

When you listen to people as they get upset about what National is doing to this country you hear a lot of them calling this government stupid, corrupt and greedy.

Selling our commons to enrich the few at the cost of our environment

It appears that National has decided to bribe farmers and fishers with the proceeds of selling our assets. The Canterbury farmers can dip into a fund to irrigate their land polluting our environment for which we all will pay and the fishery people can start fish farms and oyster farms when National scraps any legal […]
