Worst opposition ever watch

Trevor Mallard is worried that the Rugby World Cup Minister will have too much power.


  1. Voting record only the Green Party voted against it

    Mallard’s hindsight is 20/20.

  2. Even more delicious irony: Labour couldn’t find a more credible spokesman than The Minister for Clean Venues?

    Sow, reap, fuck off and give me a call when you’re ready to be taken seriously.

  3. A turf war between Big Ger and Muzza?

  4. JJW: Labour voted it to Select Committee; this is hardly hypocrisy. Parties vote things to committee all the time without actually agreeing with the end result.

    That said, I’m with Craig on this one.

  5. Mallard is such a cock strutting weasel. What good is banging on about the powers of the Minister for Party Central going to do unless he sees the RWC becoming NZ’s Com Games and Mallard wants to be in on the ground floor of hecklers inc.

  6. @Craig

    Before they can sow and reap, they need to burn off the remnants of last year’s failed crop.

  7. Great line Thomas – and so apt!
    In between the burn-off and sowing they also need to carry out some decent ground work, and in my view, this is their greatest failure to date.

    I’m also unsure if the metaphor can be pushed any further, but look forward to the attempts…

  8. They’re certainly working hard on the manuring stage.

  10. Lew – all manure and no seed just leaves you with a pile of sh1t… oh wait…
