The Herald reports:
Security was called to the parliamentary gym last week to quell a “loud and uncouth” confrontation between Police Minister Stuart Nash and another gym-goer, according to Speaker Trevor Mallard.
Nash is a frequent user of the gym and has previously bragged about his weight-lifting exploits on social media.When he told Nash he wanted to use the same equipment, an argument ensued.
On Wednesday last week, a man who works in the parliamentary complex wanted to use weight-lifting gym equipment that Nash had been using for some time, the Weekend Herald understands.
Speaker Trevor Mallard, who along with the Parliamentary Service general manager is responsible for the welfare of those working in the complex, said he was aware of the incident.
“It was over gym etiquette on machine use,” Mallard told the Weekend Herald.
“It’s not serious enough for security to report up to me. I only know about it because Nash told me earlier this week.”
This is basically a non story. Two gym bunnies exchanged words over who had dibs on a machine.
What I find interesting is how this story hit the media? Who leaked it?
