I realise that I have ceased blogging but sadly I cannot resist the temptation to make one last comment on Labour's debacle week.
Darren Hughes has shown us all exactly why we would be idiots to ever again put our livelihoods in the hands of these incompetents.
His call to fame appears to be based on nothing more than being of lickable and witty character.
His own local electorate sent him packing.
He owes his lifeline to a mickey mouse Party List that his superiors appear more than happy to rort over for solely their own benefit.
And Labour expect us to put our hopes and visions for the future in hands such as these.
Or even worse, Judith Tizard's. Actually I hope she does return and helps bury the MMP rort once and for all. At $160k she could prove to be a bargain.
We need hard nosed people with real skills to guide this country. Not a pack of half arsed lifestylers being run by nyxt (New York text). They have no connection to the challenging world that we citizens are facing on a daily basis. We can't afford the luxury of tolerating and paying for these idiots.
The Labour Party should take a good hard look at themselves.
And I don't mean by standing in front of a mirror admiring their own cleverness.
There is a big gap between being clever and being smart.
Goff is living proof of that.
