As you will know National Party Blogger David Farrar gave us a wee razzing for publishing an out of date list of Bob Clarkson’s vast parliamentary achievements on Friday. Much high-horsing followed:
[DPF: I now understand why you don’t post under your full name. You would be unemployable. No one would ever hire people whose regard for accuracy is so scant.
Davey must have been feeling like he was on a roll because he quickly followed it up with a post about Labour MPs who have been a bit quiet lately. Just to whip the rabid hoard up a bit more he turned it into a guessing game:
So that makes one Labour MP who have made zero contributions in the House since August and two who have made just one speech. Make your guesses below.
After much howling our mate Dave decided to let the cat out of the bag:
George Hawkins is the MP who has not spoken once in the House since August.
Of course more hateful gnashing ensued.
But there’s just one thing Davey failed to mention: George Hawkins has been quiet because he’s had bowel cancer.
Now that’s a pretty well known piece of information around the traps and I find it highly unlikely DPF would not have heard it.
That’s real nice work Dave.
Kudos to KB commenter Camus for calling DPF on this vile shit. I note David offered no apology.
