Jami-Lee Ross gives proxy vote to National

After over a week of absence Jami-Lee Ross resurfaced yesterday with a notice that he has given his proxy vote to National. He is now an independent MP but hasn’t been in Parliament since he was hospitalised a week and a half ago.

Making a point about ‘the maintenance of proportionality’ may be an attempt to thwart possible attempts to have him removed from parliament under the new waka jumping bill (Simon bridges recently said he has no intention of trying to invoke that at this stage).

    Clever tactic. Bridges may still try to oust him, but this move weakens his already feeble hand.

    Having faced the harsh reality of his employability, JLR is trying to secure his income for the the remaining two years.

        Many, or possibly most, could earn more with less stress outside the Beehive.

    I expect there’ll be some political enemies who will be nasty because they just are like that & will slag off poor Simon Bridges & hope his reputation & career will still be wrecked by a finding of corruption.

    For my part, I think Bridges banging on about this criminal asshole Lees-Galloway has decided not to boot out of the country – when it’s obvious he doesn’t know the full story – & saying they would have kicked him out was probably another mistake. He is virtually identical to Andy Little in being straight back into grabbing air, tv, and print time to probably criticise everything the government does, on principle, when his popularity rating is shite and being a whiner like Andy was I suspect is quite likely part of the reason.

    I await the result of the police investigation with interest. I hope he’s cleared by it, I wonder how bad things are going to get with JLR and his sleazy supporter(s), and I wonder who is going to be his replacement after Christmas.
