In the house today:

"The sponsor of the bill, Maori Party co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer, gave an angry speech to conclude the debate, in which she accused MPs opposing it as amateurs and out of their depth."

Talk about who is the amateur. The one that is only dimly aware that she is alive.

"In the heat of the moment, she then cast three votes against the bill, instead of in favour, and then quickly corrected it to two votes in favour."

We are doomed!

Finally, we are starting to see some pushback: the Speaker removing the two leaders of the racist party over their behaviour, then Marama D this afternoon for the same problems of , self-control. We had Mr Luxon confirming he won't work with the racist party, and we have Andrew Hoggard (the respected President of Federated Farmers) joining Act.

In themselves, not bell-ringers, but some light showing at least.

I'm voting for Act, but if they weren't thee I would certainly have Winston - and Shane Jones is CHOICE!

It was clearly personal for Winston, not being able to work with the Nats back in 2017, and really who can blame him for that, particularly recalling the piss poor, do nothing performance of the Nats at the time, which people seem to forget.

Who are these people that can debase the very system that supports them, making a sick display in front of the building that was supposed to represent an open and free society.

These two clowns cannot possibly be representatives of the people that I grew up alongside.

Nor do they depict the peoples of NZ to whom we have all collectively worked so hard to support.

The pox on them and a pox on those whom assume this behavior to be worthy of future trust

The hat was a statement of “Maori culture “according to the wearer when asked to remove it while in parliament sitting . The scene was set at that moment…

You mean Winston who got us into this mess in the first place?

For WII4Winston there was a personal show stopper against going with the Nats in 2017, nothing to do with political idealism, in any case right now the enemy of our enemy is our friend.
