    They are a very ancient species, the allegator, with eyes like flint and tiny, tiny brains.

    The Good Green reckons…

    ” Metiria and Russel have become highly effective and credible leaders.

    Russel Norman was first made co-leader of the Greens in 2006, the same year that Key became leader of National. Since 2008 Russel has often been referred to as the real leader of the opposition because of his solid performances in the house and the fact Labour is onto their third leader over this period. Russel has won credibility with his understanding of economics and his focussed questioning. Russel is not afraid to call things as he sees them and his likening of Key’s divisive and dismissive style of politics to Muldoon startled some, as has his firm stand against Colin Craig’s dated thinking. He is also very adept at dealing with a crisis in a very direct and transparent way (the billboard incident last election is a good example).

    Metiria Turei is now one of our most experienced parliamentarians, she is into her 12th year as an MP and has been a co-leader for over five years. Her credibility as a hard worker and focused politician is clearly shown through tracking her career. Metiria was brought up in a struggling working class family and found herself in the situation of being a 22 year old solo mother with few qualifications. Ten years later she had a law degree and was elected as a Green MP, at aged 39 she was elected co-leader. Within the party Metiria is known for her sense of humour and infectious giggle, but also as an astute leader with the ability to show leadership in any situation where it’s needed. Metiria’s performance in the house has proved she more than has the measure of Paula Bennet, Anne Tolley and Judith Collins. Metiria has also been a ground breaker for women, being the first to speak on Te Tii Marae.”

    Are you sure that this word exists?

    Surely the more usual word would be “accuser”

    Though “allegator” does have certain interesting phonetic possibilities which produce bad puns and comments on blog posts that lead to groans

    “Yup! Yup! They’ve seen a translation, yup!”

    Lie.

    “You praised the milk on the company website”

    “No I didn’t”

    “Patrick, you’re wrong!”

    Yup. Yup.

    Ha! Repeated on TV3!
    Funny.
    Then we hear that the American spies wrote Key’s spy bill for him.

    Bad news for National.

    “Russel Norman was first made co-leader of the Greens in 2006, the same year that Key became leader of National” .. and where is he now while John Key is now the most popular PM ever.
    “Metiria is known for her sense of humour and infectious giggle” .. yep agree, pity that’s it.
    “Metiria’s performance in the house has proved she more than has the measure of Paula Bennet, Anne Tolley and Judith Collins”. .. are you taking drugs bOb?
    “his firm stand against Colin Craig’s dated thinking” .. so, ok to lie and insult an political rival but cries like a baby when Koru Club Hughes gets teased

    Yes – the last reference says its obsolete, though. Not that it matters, I’ll file it away because I’m sure it will come in handy one day. 🙂
