In this week that leads up to Christmas and the time when we should all be pleasant to each other and respectful of each other’s belief systems the doofus of the week is someone who has recently displayed no inclination to do either.
The winner of this week’s award is Jordan Williams.
He has a complex past. I sense a young person who is committed to conservative politics because he thinks this is best. But his involvement in dirty politics has cast something of a shadow over his career.
And he bet Colin Craig in a defamation case winning significant damages. I don’t know how. Much as I detest Craig I did not think Jordan would win so well. But Jordan did. Somehow.
Anyway this week, the week before Christmas, he has sunk to new lows. First he got stuck into Jacinda for taking part in Secret Santa.
Seriously, how much time does @jacindaardern spend doing secret santa vs running the country?

Then the sham union he fronts attacked socialism and christmas by poking fun at both institutions at the same time.

The twitter response was brutal.
And still others believe in free market, infinite growth and peace through deep inequality and social disruption. Takes all kinds I s’pose.

It's a tad more productive than hanging around the AB's changing room, drinking beersies, talking trash. Awkward.

It really bothers Jordan Williams & his Taxpayer Club that a woman (@jacindaardern) can multi task eh.

Before you make fun of the Taxpayers' Union, just remember it's only Jordan Williams and David Farrar and they've had a tough year. https://t.co/78ytfzkC1P

And the woman who received Jacinda’s present was over the moon.
I hope Jordan has a merry christmas and an enjoyable festive season. And if he has kids that he lets them be kids and also lean the benefit of socialism that mandates that everyone’s needs should be taken care of, even if it means that some with extravagant wealth have to do with less.
