A man tried to jump into the Parliamentary Chamber today at the end of question time. Yelling something about WINZ, Paula Bennett and John Key, he was caught at the last moment by guards. I have a feeling there’s a sad story behind that. Something must be seriously wrong for a man to apparently try to harm himself in such a public and dramatic fashion.
Just as sad was Key screeching “you should be ashamed of yourself, that’s down to you guys” and made a throat-slashing gesture to Labour as the man dangled, before the DPS hustled him out. This was the nasty, callous Key that the public rarely see, but who is often on display in the House.
