Politically it was a quieter week this week. Parliament not sitting does this. And the Labour-Green-NZ First Government announced a new fully funded Auckland Transport Alignment Project and hogged the limelight. National tried to claim that it would have done all this and more anyway. I hope they have spare sets of pants as the ones they are wearing must have combusted by now.
But there was an outstanding example of stupidity from a politician that really attracted my attention. It involved the gross plaigarism of some ACT social media. To plaigarise David Seymour’s stuff you have to be rather desperate. To do a copy and paste and not change (almost) anything you have to be crazy.
So Matt King, National MP for Northland and the owner of a twitter account that has 131 followers and the tweeter of a total of 41 tweets, you are this week’s doofus of the week.
