The election was nearly two weeks ago and only now is there news about one of the new MPs.
One of New Zealand First’s newest MPs is trying to make his mark by saying burqas should be banned, military training should be compulsory and police, taxi drivers, dairy owners and bank tellers should be armed.
Had the media been doing its job properly there would have been profiles of all candidates likely to enter parliament before the election.
It could have made a difference to how people voted.
Although when so many people believe in alien visitations and psychic powers, maybe it wouldn’t.
