Bob Clarkson chose not to speak during his valedictory speech. Instead, he just held up a sign saying ‘bye bye’ (in the same font as Peter’s famous ‘no’ sign). An opportunity for both hilarity and embarrassing revelations missed. After all, this was the man who thanked the Exclusive Brethren for all their help in winning Tauranga at the National conference.
Still, he couldn’t leave without displaying his mastery of the English language one last time “I don’t require to be called a dignitary” (pronouncing it “digni-Tory”) ” I don’t require to be in this place, I don’t require to dress up in a bloody suit every day.”
Farewell, you bigoted old idiot.
