Key has given Judith Collins “time out” and told her to stay off social media such as Twitter. According to Dear Leader,

Trolls“?

Bottom-feeders“?

Isn’t this the same man who, recently, admitted to regular phone conversations with perhaps the worst troll and sleaziest bottom-feeder in New Zealand cyberspace – Cameron Slater?!
