He looks like a real smack-head. That is, the sort of prick you want to smack in the head when you see him.

Webb is now the Legal Complaints review officer for the NZ Law society.
It is a judical post that reviews the decisions of "standards committees" who deal with compaints matters under the Lawyers and Conveyancers act 2006. As it is a judical officer Mr Webb should not be engaging in partisan comment, at all. Mind you as a government appointee, why am I surprised.
