    Mikey interviewed Jonsey this morning. Jonsey proclaimed himself as the ”Lionheart Of The Regions.” This man is a national treasure.

      I feel for the sign language interpreter having to use fluttery fingers trying to interpret the soon to depart communication minister who cannot string a sentence together

        Yes, that was a classic.

        Minister of Education Hekia Parata shows the calibre of ministers in NZ’s current National govt, & David Carter demonstrates how a partisan National Speaker can make a mockery of the Westminster system & not feel a skerrick of shame. Taxpayers deserve better than this shambles.

          Hekia was an amateur compared to Clare. Clare’s in a class of her own.

              What’s sign language for ‘What the hell is going on here ?’

              How many people need the sign language, anyway ?

              I worked with a young lady who was deaf. Her mother refused to let her learn sign language & insisted she learn to lip read instead so she could function better in the hearing world. The young lady was an expert lip-reader well able to follow discussions & she too insisted on not learning to sign when she became independent because, she argued, her lip-reading ability would decline.

    “Clare Curran on personal leave after horror Question Time” two ministers down, Hipkins about to take a month off and the PM on a 4 and a half day week. Lets hope benign conditions continue.

      I thought that he was on 6 weeks leave.

      These people are asking for the discovery that they are dispensable. I thought that Clarke G was going to be full-time babysitter. Silly me. Why would they bother when she can work part-time for the same money as a fulltime PM ?

      Marama Fox also seems to have come unravelled.

        Marama Fox – how so? She & Te Ururoa are out of politics now anyway so if she’s unravelling it hardly seems like the peasants will even be interested?
