The Tauranga Mayor, Stuart Crosby, has said he “will not tolerate behaviour by controversial new MP Bob Clarkson that harms the city’s image”.
Excuse me Mr Mayor, but when did a local body politician become the person an MP reports to? It hasn’t.
The fact that I agree that Clarkson needs to think before he speaks, is beside the point. The arrogance of the Mayor in thinking it is his role to lecture an MP is somewhat staggering.
