Collins allowing mistruth to remain over KiwiBuild - Connell
From Morning Report, 7:45 am today
National MP Judith Collins vehemently denies targeting a young couple online, saying she's just raising questions about Kiwibuild's eligibility criteria. Housing Minister Phil Twyford has accused her of picking on the couple who bought a KiwiBuild house, and who spoke at a publicity event at the weekend. After Ms Collins questioned whether the couple were perhaps too wealthy to qualify for an affordable home, the couple took their social media profiles offline. Ms Collins rejects Mr Twyford's criticism, saying it was the minister who put the couple as poster children for Kiwibuild. Judith Collins has refused to appear on Morning Report. Susie Ferguson hears from Anna Connell, a digital and social media consultant.
