Trevett’s political awards

hands out some political awards for 2013:

Oscar Wilde award for best insult

But the best single insult goes to Finance Minister Bill English, who, after revelations Cunliffe’s CV was a tad glossier than reality, observed that it was “a living document” – “like the Treaty, but without the principles”.

Heh.

The Boy George Karma Chameleon Award

David Cunliffe, for singing the songs of solidarity to the unions, only to go outside and add the fine print for the benefit of a wider audience: “If economic conditions allow.”

Yeah, Nah.

Don Brash walking the plank award for missed photo opportunities

Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy for his attempt to get the Prime Minister to hold a live electric fence in Chile.

I missed that.
