Laura McQuillan ‏@mcquillanatorz 

Kelvin Davis briefly broke his silence to say he's donating Nat blogger funds to Rape Crisis but now he's quiet again …


Felix Marwick ‏@felixmarwick 

Cunliffe on Davis and TTT website - Davis hasn't gone rogue, he's a vigorous campaigner & fully on board where they're going as a team


Anna Smart ‏@annasmartnz 

It would be ironic if Hone's deal with Dotcom was the one thing that lost him his seat.#votekelvindavis …


Yvonne Tahana ‏@ytahana 

Tai Tokerau. Always the fun seat.


Laura McQuillan ‏@mcquillanatorz 

Kelvin Davis isn't talking to media after this post about the negative campaign plans in TTT …


Joshua Hitchcock ‏@jcphitchcock 

Hone making shit up about @NgatiBird receiving money from National while at the same time taking $3mm from former ACT Party supporter.


Ben Rachinger ‏@B3nRaching3r 

Tactical voting orders for Maori Nats in TTT are to vote for @NgatiBird for the electorate. Harawira out, No IMP. KDC crippled.


Paora Ropata @kiaora4that

Hone's not gutted about Kelvins campaign...........he's shit scared. Labour, once again, fail to see the wood because of all the trees.


Paora Ropata @kiaora4that

@NgatiBird is taking it to the hoop with his campaign against HoneDotCom. Ka rawe e hoa, kia kaha. Hone should stop the moaning. Harden up


SCHEMING TROLLOP ‏@nerdyjewishgrrl 

is this real? so kelvin takes money from the right to attack internet/mana but its kim dotcom that is threatening our leftist values?


Cerian Wagstaff ‏@KelianiWagstaff 

Kelvin should be campaigning 4 party vote & working 2 change govt not fighting Hone! …


Patrick Gower ‏@patrickgowernz 

What will Cunliffe, McCarten & Barnett do about Kelvin Davis @NgatiBird who is going hard, going negative and wants to win the Tai Tokerau?


Patrick Gower @patrickgowernz

Mallard has just retweeted my Kelvin Davis tweet. #ismccartenawake


Patrick Gower @patrickgowernz

Kelvin Davis asking for money to stop Dotcom on his Facebook page.#somebodytellmccarten


Lew ‏@LewSOS 

Sing it with me: Freeeeee-eee Kelvin Man-Davis


Lew ‏@LewSOS 

Most depressing thing about the TTT emails isn't that they torpedoed the campaign, but their wretched "HR-manager-of-a-major-govt-dept" tone


Tova O'Brien @TovaOBrien

Emails show Labour proposed a work around to keep dirt site & donations without the bad press. The same party criticises cabinet club


Tova O'Brien @TovaOBrien

Labour can't have it both ways with Internet-Mana #freekelvindavis


Tova O'Brien @TovaOBrien

Labour slams @NgatiBird's anti-Internet-Mana website then says actually it's ok if someone else does it for us, we can still keep the cash


Phil Quin ‏@philquin 

Sad indictment of NZ politics: Hone Harawira calling on @NgatiBird 2 resign 4 campaigning against him isn't stupidest thing I've heard today


Patrick Gower @patrickgowernz

Leaked emails: Labour blocks anti-Dotcom/Hone campaign in Te Tai Tokerau … No need for a deal if you don't try to win.


Imperator Fish ‏@ImperatorFish 

Hone Harawira appears to be incensed that his opponent in the TTT is trying to win it. How very dare he!


Paora Ropata @kiaora4that

@nzlabour are killing @NgatiBird's campaign. Why should Kelvin suffer because of Cunliffes lack of popularity. Kelvin's being railroaded.


Paora Ropata ‏@kiaora4that 

What? Paddy has an email showing @nzlabour don't like the negative tactics used againstHone Dotcom. Why do they give a fvk?


Patrick Gower ‏@patrickgowernz 

Coming up on @TheNationTV3 I have emails showing Labour head office blocking an anti-Dotcom/Hone campaign in Te Tai Tokerau. #pullingpunches
