Bulletin 7/2/2017

Summary:

More Waitangi Day photos.  Controversy is brewing over Willing Jackson joining Labour, with some dissent from Labour members, and heckling from other parties.  Greens are concerned about farms encroaching onto rivers.

First counter-factual and potentially misleading posts since the 2017 election date was announced, as follows:

(!) @bhudson_nz, from Echo Chamber National, links to a partisan opinion blog that mingles opinions with quotes and facts taken out of context.

(!) @ScottSimpsonMP, from Echo Chamber National, tweets a statement that is contrary to facts, while pursuing the controversy arising from Willie Jackson joining Labour.

(!) @NagtiBird, from Echo Chamber Labour, linking to an old blog post from April 2016 in present tense, making it seem like a current event.
