Dumbest Ever Caucus

What a glorious headline in today's Dompost!

Caucus to ask Goff to explain speech

Labour's Illiterates now require their leader to translate his speeches after the event. They are no longer able to understand what he means.

Funny that. I thought English was still our first language and I'm not sure why anyone could misunderstand such simple phrases as:-

"Back in 2004, Labour's process on dealing with the issue, in a different environment, could have been better."

Translated - "We panicked and stole the rights of Maori to have their property rights determined in court."

"Ngati Porou successfully negotiated an agreement with the Crown under the foreshore and seabed law."

Translated: - "We had to buy their votes to keep Derek Fox out."

There, that wasn't too hard was it?

Adolf wonders if the caucus will also ask Mr Goff to explain how 4.5% is only half as bad as 9%

Is Goff going to ask Grant Robertson to resign his seat?

If Grant Robertson can't follow orders then he isn't much use to the Labour party.

I don't understand why anyone else would want to lead Labour at the moment, but asking the leader to explain sounds like a challenge.
