Bulletin 5/5/2017


Labour presses National on rising costs of living for the country’s poorest.  The Greens raise questions about the government’s position on Israel’s illegal settlements, and on dairy farming and river quality.  Not reflected here but seen on the Twitter feeds is increasing campaigning activity – few new policy announcements, but the candidates are out introducing themselves to the voting public.


The Echo Chamber Greens is now following @_chloeswarbrick and @tautokai, Green candidates for the election.  The Echo Chamber United Future is now following @UnitedNZ.  If you’re wondering how these are found and selected, it’s when MPs, candidates, or other official PR talking about policy gets retweeted by people already followed by the echo chamber accounts.
