Trevett on MPs and summer

After a year of travels, both domestic and international, Mana leader also decided to follow in the footsteps of his ancestors, the great explorers, and set up an expedition of his own: the goal being to find out where his office in Parliament actually is.

Heh.

Labour MP will finally give up his favourite pastime of riling up those in his own party by shredding the internal organs of the Green Party and singing paeans to mining, casinos and big business. He will instead be elected as leader of the political party that is his true turangawaewae: Act.

Shane would be an excellent Leader of ACT!

    When Hone finally finds his office I wonder if he will confine his land claim to just that part of the beehive or instead the whole Parliament? Fortunately Johnathan Hunt has left the hallowed place because no doubt Hone will be on the lookout for a few porkers on which to celebrate once his waka is berthed prominently at Lambton Quay.

    Think of it, again: it is not a bad idea!

    I think Hone belongs to the ‘Weathewhakawi’ Tribe

    Hi Steve at 1213.

    I thought that was the ‘Weathefukawi’ tribe.

    (These guys used to wander round the jungle, lost, calling out their tribal title)

    Or are they a different bunch?

    (Oh! I see! In your word its the New Zild double-u for ‘f’! Bit slow this morning!! Too much wassailing and all that!)

    I hope Hone Harawira didn’t eat any food brought by the evil white colonial oppressors over the Christmas period.

    You know, ham, turkey, spuds, peas, gravy – booze – that sort of thing.

    Surely he would kept it real and his whanau would have feasted on traditional Maori kai; mussels, fish, kumaras the size of an index finger, roasted human index finger…

    My understanding is that a favourite native way of cooking the neighbours was to place their feet in the fire and wedge their mouths open allowing the steam created by the roasting feet to cook the body from the inside out so maybe it wasn’t roasted fingers Hatfield and his family feasted on. :-)

    My understanding is that the unfortunate unhappy meals had their hamstrings cut so they couldn’t walk, meaning they were always fresh, always good.

    Shane Jones for ACT? Hmmmmm…
    Roger Douglas’ old ally turns up in “Monganui” (sp.) dining on fish and chips

    Her attempts at humour are a bit lame – like most of our so-called journalists.
    If they can’t be funny, and most of them can’t, they could just try to be accurate or even find an original thought instead of trotting out the same tired old stuff year after year.

    That’s a particularly subtle way of suggesting that ACT leaders have all been wankers David! :)

    Other than Hone, I think Shane Jones is a good bloke. One of the few that does not ram Moari bullshit down everyones’ throat.
    Leader if ACT? can’t see it. ACT is dead and will stay dead.
    Maybe join National Shane – you have your followers just as Hone does

    When you consider how Roger Douglas, Labour member, went to the right of National Shane Jones doing the same is not so silly.

    That Hone seems to have trouble finding his Parilamenrtary office, may help explain how Maori found New Zealand by chance, but, although being such great navigators of the Pacific, seemed to have totally missed such a fucking big place as Australia.
