In this afternoon’s debate Gerry Brownlee tried to have the word “slippery” ruled unparliamentary in relation to John Key. Proof, if any were needed, that Cullen had hit a nerve perhaps?
Also interesting to see John Key leading off General Debate in the House – the Nats have done this before when Key’s been in trouble – the last time may have been the privatisation of schools and asset sales debacle, before that it was the “we would(n’t?) have sent troops to Iraq” episode.
True to formula Key even led off in much the same way as on past occasions – with a flat-footed attack on Phil Goff.
