Cadaverous Pete Hodgkinson (old, shaky and beyond his useful life) droned on in Parliament today with his ponderously meaningless drivel disguised as questions without notice. Remember folks, this is the idiot who (a) focused on Pansy Wong's signing of a document for which she had sought and obtained official approval and (b) was so blinded by his own brilliance that he missed the real issue which was improper use of travel privileges by her and her husband.
At one stage Mallard chimed in to ask the PM if he stood by the remarks of his staff member Mr Kevin Taylor, who had accurately described Hodgkinson as a f***wit.
The PM stood and delivered a dignified response in which he deplored the use of such terms by his staff member on the grounds that it was entirely false to describe the funereal veterinarian as a 'wit' of any description.
