In other news Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner find David Parker as boring as the rest of us do. And John Campbell is a pretentious knob. David Shearer can’t even get a decent seat to a pinko function and Winston’s missus paid for his seat and he did not show up because as a Pensioner he might have been too tired.
Pork Chop’s political gossip is taking a turn for the factual better since she gave up and let
Duncan Garner “sources” write for her. After the truth and Pork Chop being enemies for so long it is actually slowly becoming believable with gems like this.
Actress Lucy Lawless and Greenpeace activist Bunny Mcdiarmid started the standing ovation. They were suitably impressed with the warblings of environmentalist Al Gore at the black-tie dinner hosted in his honour on Friday night.
Others weren’t quite so enamoured with the former VP. “Gore the bore preached like an evangelist minister,” said one prominent TV type. Earlier MC John Campbell had requested Chatham House rules. He needn’t have bothered. Unlike Alan Jones, Gore revealed nothing inflammatory or delicate in his 30-minute sermon.
Labour MP David Parker jumped to attention at question time, inquiring about sustainability that had Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner stifling yawns.
It was hard to see what his leader, David Shearer, was thinking – he was sitting so far back. NZ First leader Winston Peters, by contrast, had a seat at a $12,000 platinum VIP table but never showed up. Perhaps the late-night DJing gig at a Ponsonby night club last week took its toll.
Thirty minutes of Al Gore.
Hands up who actually paid for their own tickets? That list should be printed by any decent gossip columnist worth their position.
