The hypocrisy gets worse

Okay let’s see if I have this right?

National MP Shane Ardern is being prosecuted for disorderly behaviour for driving a tractor up a few steps at a rally which had official permission to protest there, with a tractor which security had allowed onto the grounds, and which everyone there agreed was good natured and no threat to anyone.

The day after the Police announce his prosecution, a group of women get up in the actual debating chamber of Parliament, during question time, strip off their shirts, yell abuse at MPs and chant songs while being evicted. However this is somehow not deemed disorderly behaviour and they are not charged.

One does not have to be a brain surgeon to see the double standards being applied.

Even Speaker Jonathan Hunt realises he went too far in encouraging Police to charge Ardern, and he has apologised.
