Robert Doyle has deleted his FB and Twitter. What a day! But it is not over yet. To catch some of you up here is the series of events that lead to that happening.

I’d love to chat directly about what interests we share and concerns you have about Melbourne.” When people started to raise their concerns over his heavy handed approach to political demonstrations he deleted his Facebook account. http://blogs.abc.net.au/victoria/2011/11/faine-vs-doyle-over-occupy-melbourne-jon-faines-video-blog.html So we started 'Operation #AskDoyle' to get people to Tweet there "concerns" to him. People did. He deleted his Twitter. We have now started a blog. Please upload screen shots of the questions that you have asked that have not been answered. http://askdoyle.tumblr.com/ Lets hold Robert Doyle to account. Click share.
