Lots of new MPs in Wellington last night. Two semi-amusing stories.

The new MP for Tauranga dined at the Backbencher, and ordered WInston’s Schnitzel. He insists it was for the Schnitzel, not the name.

Another new National MP told the story of how he got on well with the Green candidate and was invited to their place for a 40th birthday party. He went along and discovered that the 40th birthday was for the candidate’s donkey! Yes, seriously. His kids enjoyed though being able to ride the birthday celebrant!

Incidentally 40 years is pretty good going for a donkey.
