NZPA make it clear that amongst the insults Tau Henare used to describe Rodney Hide, he called him a cunt.
Now I am no prude, but that is shocking language for an MP to use, especially about another MP. And to say it in front of media on the record is incredibly bad judgement.
I like Tau. He a passionate guy who stands up for what he believes. And his ability to wind up New Zealand First last term was priceless. But his use of the cunt word is pretty inexcusable. Never mind it was about a Minister in the National-led Government.
It’s one thing for a non MP like Matthew Hooton to use the term to refer to Helen Clark’s former Foreign Minister, but Matthew isn’t an MP.
Now Busted Blonde at Roar Prawn reports that Tau has done humble pie on Facebook, which is appropriate.Tags: Rodney Hide, Tau Henare
