    Epitome of bluster

    Says it all.Spread it wherever you can.Gerry is a nasty and Bridges Pitbull.

    National will revert to what I call 'verbal gynmnastics' because whatever they waffle on about long enough must sound quite impressive to those who are so NZ National Party to the point of fanaticism. That is be wordy enough and throw in big words here and there and the National Party sheep lap it up like it's liquid gold.

    Gerry sounds sharper than usual in this clip. Impressive. Jude won't have a clear run it seems.

    But since it was reported that all the National MPs are complicit in the mix and match ads, and have not withdrawn them, what will happen next? Mallard didn't explicitly ban the attack ads did he?

    And what a delicious example of mix and match above on "Checkpoint." To listen/watch Brownlees point of order on Thursday sounds remarkably like the one above, without editing!

    From any point from 6:30:

    Bridges must think we all have the collective intelligence of amoeba. Selectively editing a bunch of clips together to give the impression the speaker is incoherent, ignorant, or unhinged is painfully easy. Give the average teenager twenty minutes and a laptop and you'll get essentially the same result. You're not big and clever, National. You're not even funny. You're pathetic and desperate for attention. Try harder.

    I'm kind of hoping we see a sudden spate of videos selectively edited by Joe Public featuring National MPs dribbling nonsense. If they cry about it we can all claim it's a freedom of speech issue.

      I'm kind of hoping we see a sudden spate of videos selectively edited by Joe Public featuring National MPs dribbling nonsense. If they cry about it we can all claim it's a freedom of speech issue.

      Brilliant idea. Hope some of our wittier bloggers and twitterers pick up the suggestion.

      I am kind of hoping lots of us bother to contact the nearest Nat MP, and ask them about their defiance of the speaker's ruling.

      Go on, I dare y'all, you don't even have to get out of yr chair.

      I have done it to Ian 'invisible' McKelvie.

      "Hello Mr McKelvie, I am a constituent in Colyton.

      I am curious as to the motivation for the recent release of videos, by National MPs.

      This was done in defiance of the speaker.

      Was the motivation a desperate attempt for 'column inches'?

      A protection of democracy?

      Cheers,…."

    National has not changed one iota. It is still horribly tainted with the John Key daze and tactics. Until the crap is cleared out of the party its a no go for me.
