Nexus Informally Interviews New Conservative Via Facebook Messenger

On Wednesday morning, a dusty Josh Umbers saw that one of his mates had sent a troll message to the New Conservative Party. Given that it was the morning after the new community transmission cases were announced, he thought he would try and push his luck to get some outlandish answers. See the screenshots below and let us know what you think about the words and opinions on display. Do you think you’ll still be voting for New Conservative if you were planning on it?

Game over.
Round 2 on another account, hit with an instant ban.

Give it a shot yourself, and let us know how you get on.
