Was the Wagner Twitter storm a Weapon of Mass Distraction?

Last week Newshub released a dreadful poll for Labour and the left-wing in general.

Labour immediately went into damage control and released their version of a UMR to tell a different story.

Could it be that National immediately rushed a weapon of mass distraction into play with Nicky Wagner tweeting a silly tweet, and then pushed through to Grant Robertson so he could marshal the forces of the outraged?

Ironically, a Minister for Disability Issues doing something spastic.  


Well to distract from Little’s claims that Labour are actually doing really well in the polls, and no one should really believe a word he says when reputable companies like Reid Research are producing proper polls.

It’s worked.

All weekend everyone has been talking about a tweet from an insignificant and thick minister.

It fixed the media attention…they are now distracted in trying to extract a resignation from a dopey minister for an injudicious tweet, which will also bring focus onto silly tweets from Labour senior MPs, totally annihilating Little’s message that mainstream media polls are dodgy.

Sadly for Andy, it won’t fix his numbers.

Still… counting down the days.

Meanwhile…well done Nats.
