EDITORIAL: No more tweeting required

Our esteemed leader is becoming less esteemed every time she takes to social media.

Would somebody in the Liberal office please take control of Christy Clark’s Twitter account?

Close it. Vet it. Do something with it; just stop her from using it.

Our esteemed leader is becoming less esteemed every time she takes to social media.

First she posts a picture to Twitter, letting all her followers know how proud she was to have found a keepsake album from Rolf Harris – the disgraced Aussie entertainer currently serving a 69-month sentence for indecent assaults on four teenage girls.

And while perhaps she can justify not knowing Rolf Harris’s whereabouts, not knowing the reason for Good Friday is a little more concerning.

“Good Friday reminds us that hard work and sacrifice are rewarded. I hope you have a restful and meaningful #Easter long weekend.”

Yes folks; Christy Clark mistook Easter for Labour Day. Either that, or she believes that hard work and sacrifice should be rewarded with crucifixion.

Politicians give the media plenty of fodder for questioning their common sense during their day-to-day activities.

Our premier has a serious case of foot-in-mouth disease.

Remember when the favourite retort of those caught in an embarrassing situation was to claim they were misquoted? Recording devices put an end to that.

Nowadays, the popular argument among those unwise enough to engage in social media before letting their brains process their work is that their Twitter accounts were hacked.

It’s surprising Clark did not use that one on at least one occasion.
