The farce continues.
The most bizarre comment of the lot comes from Trevor - every lady's friend when he's in the mood - Mallard who now conflates left wing socialist feminazi thought with 'mainstream.'
"....[Haden].......he's not diplomatic and he says what he thinks and sometimes, when you are representing New Zealand as an ambassador, you just can't do that you've got to bite your tongue."
Even more so when your views were not mainstream, Mr Mallard said.
Mallard wouldn't know mainstream if he was drowning in the Rakaia River during the late spring thaw.
