No more so than Grant Robertson harping on about the Radio Live show and email trails, when he knows, and it is in the public domain, that the only objection Labour held at the time was that Goff wasn’t also invited to have a slot. They did not see the action as illegal, but unfair (in their view) because Goff did not have a turn.
If it had been funnier, the fact that it was otherwise an indulgence on the part of two or three people at our expense wouldn’t have been so galling. Tau and Joyce and not Abbott and Costello (or even Hudson and Halls… although Tau looks like he knows their cuisine well).
National wasting house time on this childish bullshit are no better.
Meh. Parliament’s not really good for anything but comedy, anyway. The more childish they act, the more entertaining they are for the general public; this is probably the most productive things that MPs do.
If Labour wants to live by the sword of Parliamentary questions then it can die by the same sword. Question Time is the time honoured place for this sort of thing to be raised. Even the Labour members could see the humour in it. Steven Joyce’s tounge in cheek manner was comedy gold.
Oh indeed. where is the action that is so urgently required from Shearer? Mallard has sold these tickets at a profits and all he has done is admit that he was wrong and offer to refund the profits to the buyers. Surely more must be done!
I hold no brief for the Labour Party or its pet duck, but I find the sight of these people poncing around like this while burning up shitloads of my tax money and resources to be demeaning and insulting. Assholes.
