Politicians read out mean tweets

Politicians in Australia have taken to Youtube to put some humour on the cruel tweets they recieve. Here is New South Wales Premier, Mike Baird reading out some gems he recieves from the punters

On the opposite side of the fence, Greens Senator, Sarah Hanson-Young read out some gems she recieves from the voters

Just goes to show some the abuse politicians recieve online, but it’s interesting to see some of them Down Under turn it to their advantage
