    Agree completely and have just blogged accordingly.

    Those journalists who trawl through Facebook pages to find things about MP’s families which they can use to attack the MP (or in this case the PM) should take a good hard look at whether or not they are in the wrong job. Attacking politicians via their families is particularly low.

    Quite right. He can be justly proud of his daughter. But also, while I have some political differences with JK we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that he is a fundamentally decent bloke, and he shows that with his support for his daughter, but in many other ways too.

    He should give some general etiquette lessons to Mallard….though not sure he has the wit to take them on board.

    It’s a shame he had to start with a sour comment. We know his politics – he could just have kept it generous.
    Mind you, he’d be a monster if he thought any differently about JK and his daughter – or any other politicians and their families.

    Takes guts and leadership to say that sort of thing when the target of your comments is slaughtering you in the polls. Cunners will be eyeing up Hipkins as a threat I’d say.

    Didn’t Cunliffe demote Hipkins last week? Maybe Hipkins is making a play to be the next Shane Jones. Maybe McCulley could give him a position as NZ’s ambassador-at-large to the Ginger community?

    What if one chooses to be a neo-Nazi? Or join Opus Dei? Or, worse, become a Labour MP?

    If Labour want to bring the children of politicians into the mix for “beating up” politicians then perhaps somebody needs to ask Trevor Mallar why when he was a supporter of school zoning his own kids didn’t go to the local school they were zoned for.

    I asked him this question face to face once and he got grumpy at me telling me to keep his family out of the discussion – which although it took away a valid point I had to show he was a two faced self serving git -he had a valid point.

    Agree – leave families alone. In fact, I’m not only disgusted in the reporter for Facebook stalking, but worse – the editor for allowing it to spread.

    The Sisterhood won’t like him for that. I like him now because of it – and because of that :-)

    Talk about missing the point BeaB. It’s because he’s no fan of Key that makes the rest of what he says a nice gesture.

    Full marks to the Member for Rimutaka. He must be the first Labour parliamentarian not to use any & all opportunities for negative attack since Clarkula began her reign of terror.

    Doubtlessly his colleagues in the party of the bitter & twisted will extract utu from the poor bugger.

    Chippie, are you and Trevor getting a divorce? or have you just found out that Trevor is a liar and a cock?

    I didn’t think the original story was an attack on the PM in any way. Ms Key’s artistic career will always attract some attention just because of her father’s position.

    burt: Why didn’t Mallard’s kids go to the local school?

    Did he got grumpy because he wanted to keep his family out of any discussions? How long had they been at the school they attended? Where did their friends go to school? What other circumstances could there have been which saw them at a school different than the one you think they should have attended? If he had changed them from where the first one had originally enrolled would he have been criticised for using his children as political pawns and appeasement dolls for the masses outside his family?
