Just a few days after getting a promotion, Labour MP has received the chop from his leader .

Mr Hipkins was shorn of his red locks this morning to raise money for a cancer charity.

David should have left it hard down. Then Chippie would look the part to be MP for Rimutaka :-)

Looking like a younger Trevor Mallard :-)

While the general consensus was positive, Mr Hipkins was not so sure when shown the results.

”Oh my goodness, it’s really short. What have I done?” he said.

Mr Shearer also had concerns.

”I just hope I can get the red hair off my suit,” he said.

Heh, he may need decontamination.

Mr Shearer revealed he had pledged to have one Labour MP a year shave their head for the cause, Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand.

He hoped to line up a woman MP for next year, he said.

”I had a word to Annette King last night, but she wasn’t too impressed.”

Labour MP , who watched on from the sidelines this morning, also seemed less than keen on the idea.

If Jacinda takes the place of Chris next year, I’m pledging $1,000 in advance to the cancer charity! :-)

    Jacinda can’t shave her hair. Her hair and teeth is all she has, cause she isn’t there for her brains or experience thats for sure.

    Not one nice message congratulating the cause or putting aside the partisan bullshit to acknowledge the good deed going on. Some of you can be so quick to bemoan beneficiaries, anything brown or the ‘scum of the left’ – yet your comments and (in)actions on some things speak volumes for your own character. The mirror can provide a pretty bad reflection.

    The self righteous right can be pretty fucken ugly at times.

    @The Scorned – so do you, when you went to school, (possibly Uni), if you have/had kids then you did then too. any visit to the doctor. If you are a farmer or a buiness owner then chances are you have received a tax subsidy of some sort. If you have done any of the above you have been on the receiving end of socialism (or a form of it) None of this has anything to do with the fact that the guy is raising money for charity …….does it?

    Mike….you just explained why socialisms wrong. Plus Im a net tax contributor…unlike half the country. I never signed up to steal other peoples money…Hipkins did….so that makes him scum.

    So am I (a net contributor)…I don’t think socialism is wrong, more the people who implement it are. FWIW – I think Hipkins is not fit to hold a place on my toilet paper roll holder let alone a seat in parliament, but what he is doing here is for a good cause and is worth acknowledging.
