How fitting that Audrey Young is Speaker David Carter’s very last fan in the world – Labour’s mini revolt smacks of pettiness.
There has been one egregious error by the Speaker this term, in letting the Prime Minister get away with claims that Labour supported murderers and rapists.
There have been multiple egregious errors by the Speaker this term. He is nakedly biased and utterly inconsistent, and everybody knows it.
But Labour and Little’s constant clash with the chair smacks more of frustration that the party is not making gains where it wants, in hits against the Government or its own policy triumphs.
“Smacks” is in the eye of the beholder. Labour and Little are challenging the rubbish decisions of a rubbish Speaker. As they should. As should an unbiased media.
