Trying to Stay Trim

A timely reminder for David Shearer about the reasons why children don’t eat breakfast, now that Labour is set to fund their breakfast.

Parekura Horomia suggests that:

“They are trying to stay trim”

He then goes on to suggest that children going to school without breakfast is a massive beat-up…for once I believe Parekura Horomia.

Labour in government scoffed at proposals to feed children at school and now they are converts to it…has David Shearer bought shares in Hubbards?

    Or it could be that the morbidly obese people hit the cupboards first and ate everyone else’s breakfast

    • Travis Poulson

      If that is indeed the case, I bet the rest of Parekura’s family are skinny.

    Fuck me.. I have no words.

    More of the parrents bene can be spent on drugs, booze and smokes. If Lairbour get in. Buying votes again.

      I’m buying more Sky City shares. More state-funded divvies coming up!

    Nanny state at its finest. Yet another costly labour party policy which will remove responsibility from the parents. Where do you draw the line? Soon they will be pushing for free lunches..and you can guarantee that the parents who can’t afford breakfast for their children have unusual spending habits and no budgets. What about spending this money on educating low income parents on how to budget?

    Parekura has lost some weight since the 2008 clip. Funny that, his personal income dropped with a change in Govt.
    Breakfast for kids is not part of School. Can’t feed them – don’t breed them

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    I can see the Tories being rattled by the brilliant plan from Sheep Shearer. This is a sure vote winner folks. Game over for Emperor Key

  • Troy

    Ole Parekura, the role model for our kids of the future and how to be a fit healthy individual, I’d be slating Gerry Brownlee, but he didn’t get up and spew forth what Parekura did in this clip – what a goat’s knob.
