The better deputy to be

While acknowledging Invercargill mayor, Tim Shdbolt, at the dinner for the Prime Minsiter in Invercargill last night, Bill English said, he’d rather be John Key’s deputy than Tim’s.

If you haven’t been following local body politics in Southland that might not be funny, but the audience knew of the strained relations between Tim and his deputy mayor and was greatly amused.

Tim had the grace to laugh too, though it’s possible he didn’t find it quite as funny as everyone else did.
