    He’s married to Paula, right?

    Ha, I don’t know which was funnier Lockwood trying not to piss himself or Bennet turning into a beetroot.

    • Bunji 2.1

      That’s an impressive shade of red…

      • McFlock 2.1.1

        and achieved so quickly. Not to mention his jumping the gun on the next supplementary, which implies a bit of objective fixation and/or auditory exclusion – all of which mean that Peters scored a palpable personal hit, as well as jocularity in the House.

    • North 2.2

      Redder than the Speaker’s sash !

    Can someone please post what Peters said? I couldn’t make out all the words.

    Peters: I seek leave of the House that David Bennett be given odium money for asking those questions.

    To my ears, anyway 🙂 

  5. He is a right mudguard

  6. David C 6

    That is a awesome shade of red…for a Nat MP…
    What did Lockwood say after order order?

    Tho its not even close to the Gareth Hughes bomb for humour….

      He said, with regard to Peters, (something along the lines of) ‘That’s not a valid point of order but I do have some sympathy for it’.
