    Default Bill English: King of the Texters

    So what was Bill English doing sending 450 texts to an ex staff member? I dont think I have sent that many texts to everyone I know in my whole life so it seems like quite a large number to me.

    Seems we are in the age of cleansing: Todd Barclay declared his under hand dealings, so has Meteria Turie. So what of Bill?

    God knows bill just clams up and hopes it will go away,NOT.
    Maybe KillBill(movie title not literal) off and replace with Joyce. Time a reprint of hoarding posters so that they come out a week after Jacindas and Labours new ones. Its a cunning move seeing all these boring lonely national hoardings around but no red labour ones.Then out they come soon ,the excitement of the new, no one will see the stale national hoardings unless they replace them with exciting new ones featuring Joyce and judith in her giant anaconda blue national scarf

    I didn't realise there was a constitutional limit, a stautory limit on how much you texted to someone? What's the authority for that? I've probably broken the limit to friends, my son, my daughters, my wife.
    Who cares? It's a victimless crime.

    Of course there is no limit. But if you are a dis-interested by stander why are you sticking your oar in to the tune of 450 texts. Arent there more important things to be thinking and texting about?

    Back in June it was reported "An unredacted copy of the police file obtained by Newsroom includes a text message from English to an official in his former Clutha-Southland electorate, seemingly confirming that Barclay had been recording Dickson". A text message doesnt sound like the PM is too interested or involved. But 450? In a saga that saw one of his MP's ditched for less than Meteria gets to keep her job for.

    Bill has said on midday national radio news that he doesn't have the texts anymore and can't remember what they were. Thats it simple ehh , end of story ;not.Credibility question marks remain.

    Clever Jacinta is leaving this very critical integrity ethical issue alone and at the same time trusting voters to join the dots about Bill and Todd and leave it to Winston to dish the dirt about the texting etc.

    Looks as though this is going to continue snowball as the PM is trying to stonewall. Plenty of political journos are starting to dig deeper as well .....

    Bill does know that even if he deletes texts they still exist. How does he think police gather evidence? They go looking at text histories of course.

    Agree with that - history repeats I thought on another post 1999 but 2002 I think is correct
