Hey NZTA, you might have deleted the tweet but we still got the screenshot

Our resident hawk eye, Sally, grabbed that screenshot of a tweet from NZTA.

It beggars belief that someone in such a role would even get into the debate, let alone take such an anti-American stance. They are civil servants.  

As Sally commented:

Since when did a government traffic agency comment on NZ Foreign Affairs. So wrong in many ways.

Deleting the tweet shows they know it was wrong, too bad we’ve got it.

My longest friend in National’s caucus, Scott Simpson grabbed it too:

This is unacceptable, but obviously the new standards we can expect under this government.

I wonder what Julie Anne Genter is going to say about it.

As for the sentiment about getting nothing from the US…

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
