Nats ruin the party

Well I might be drawing a long bow there but last night’s press gallery party was the worst I’ve ever been to and I suspect the Nats’ filibustering of the EFB might have to take the blame. Last year the do was a raucous good time with loads of drinking, gossip and chaos. This year it was like a morgue.

I was gonna take some photos but honestly? There was nothing to see. Having Parliament in urgency didn’t help and everyone seems exhausted. The usual suspects were there (including DPF – although even he seemed to be working the room half-heartedly) but most of the MPs were ducking in and out and none seemed to be engaged. In the end I just caught up with ‘Sod and we went elsewhere…

Press Gallery Party: 3/10 – I blame National.

PS: ‘Sod I’ve still got your wallet but you’re not getting it back until you apologise for puking on my shoes.

    it’d be interesting to see which trolls weren’t posting while DPF was there.

    Jeez Bill don’t be so precious – it was only a little bit puke and you shouldn’t have stood so close. That said, I need my wallet so Bill, I’m sorry. Good night despite the washout at the press do though. I wonder if Farrar will vanity post it today?

    being Robinsod means never having to say you’re sorry.
