      Peters responses were disgraceful and he was aided and abetted by Mallard.

        Try listening to Twyford. Lost count of how many times when answering different questions he failed to address the question & Trev told to Oppos to ask it again & the number of times even Trev had to cut him off with ‘that’s enuf, the member will resume his seat’ because he can’t stop himself blithering on with a load of smarmy, party political bollocks. He’s a crashing bore, & a twit, that man.

      Actually I got that wrong. Net -38$ to 42% and is TV/Print Media. RNZ off the scale.

        Net -38% (2016) to net -42% and it would be interesting to know RNZ?

    I just saw on AlJz feedback from some of G7 members, on MrT in recent days; looks like they are really concerned about his ‘erratic behaviour’.. Trade War with ‘USAs allies’

    Mr Trudeau looked really pissed off !
    * they seem to think Mr T is a ‘Total JOKE’ (politically) ?

    Robert Guyton has been busy, no wonder he is not here to spread the gospel.

    Good article though.
