    Whaleoil continue the Winston crusade by putting up a one-sided attack post against ACT who many Oilers were considering voting for…….

    One poster is on to it…….

    “Asking why David won’t brown nose Winnie and being surprised when the answer is not one of capitulation – that is hardly a potential ACT voter or even someone with a basic awareness of the current political environment. I assume this is being posted as part of the current WOBH adhesion to NZFirst”

        The Whaleoil sheep are just following Slater over the cliff of ridiculousness……….Seymour’s post on there did get a good amount of likes though.

      Some good docos available on that channel’s website, eh? Just another perspective. Like those of the sailors on the Pueblo who survived a deliberate & sustained attack by Israel that the US & Israel still pretend was a mistake.
