Tracy Watkins reports:
NZ First MP Andrew Williams ended up the butt of his own joke during Parliament’s question time today after accusing Conservation Minister Nick Smith of being caught “with his pants down”.
A phrase Mr Williams of all people should never use!
The question nearly bought the House down after it revived allegations that Williams pulled down his trousers and urinated on a tree outside the North Shore council offices while he was serving as its mayor in 2010.
Smith was being questioned about claims he meddled in the submission process for a dam project in Hawke’s Bay.
After the laughter subsided Williams repeated his question, but rephrased it to ask Smith about being caught in ” a difficult situation”.
I think it was Mr Williams who ended up in the difficult situation.
