Thanks Bob


Bob Clarkson  has declined the opportunity to give a valedictory speech but will release a written farewell statement tomorrow.

He may well be rememberd best for being less than circumspect.

But we owe him our thanks because had he not ousted WInston Peters at the last election, Peters wouldn’t have taken the electoral petition which led to him asking Owen Glenn for a donation which has finally exposed him as a hypocrite and a lier.

Who will give valedictory speeches?


The NBR predicts there will be tears and fireworks in parliament this week.

It also mentions the valedictory speeches.

Whether or not David Benson-Pope delivers one will confirm if he’s retiring or planning to stand for the Dunedin South seat as an independent, or for a party other than Labour.
