VERY FUNNY PLASTIC MAORI ??



In an age when it is considered not at all funny to make fun of say peoples very prominent teeth, a predilection to pronounce all 't's as 'd's, a rebuke from the very biased speaker for a still imagined suggestion the PM is a silly little girl, no matter how accurate, it was a return to the worst of the Muldoon years in the house yesterday.
Mind you after 40 mostly wasted years for a certain dinosaur that was where it began for him.
The rather jarring display of humour in mocking the way the opposition leaders sometimes pronounces 'China' raising schoolgirl giggling fit from the female sharing his bench was a very revealing departure from the caring government concerned with bullying in the work place, mental health and all the other pseudo faux outrage at any perceived offensive speech.

Ha Ha Ha but that was more 1950s student humour from a capping Magazine than an utterance from the deputy PM in the opening debate of the "year of delivery".

Of course it was only the tragics who watched a rambling umming and arring waffle from the nations supposed leader, followed by a hard hitting focussed effort from Bridges where he made a stinging attack on all the many shortcomings of the current rabble except for any reference to lawnmowers, lines and probable embarrassment around drug use, and then the farcical rambling of an old man more intent on personal attack than politics, that provided ample opportunity for a responsible media plenty of scope for both "news" and Opinion" but no, not the day,  what a certain self immolated ex National MP thought of the current opposition leaders poll figures was of far greater moment?

...probable embarrassment around drug use...

Ever had an alcoholic drink or smoked a cigarette, Gravedodger? If so, do you feel embarrassed about it?

Pity these national MP's didn't follow through Dodger.....playing games with the Tax payers dollar in order to score cheap points.

Egbut ... so Standing Orders mean nothing then. That will be a good defense next time the Speaker calls up someone for referring to St Jacinda as a SLG.

I think Milts post (above) covers it.........
