England’s Code of Conduct Needed For Shearer

Faced with ill-discipline and in-fighting among players the¬†England FA has come out with a list of Do’s and Dont’s for their players. ¬†It is not a bad guide for politicians to follow so I have re-written it for say….ergh….ughm……the Labour Party and David Shearer.

    Do behave like adults in Parliament when the public are watching
    Do stick to the important issues for NZ
    Do stop asking ‘why’ questions – when its obvious there’s no answer

    Do use a sensible amount of time watching/talking about tapes. If discussing tapes, please make sure they actually exists and you have seen them prior. If you have not proven the existance and/or watched the tapes, please do not bring Government departments into disrepute by claiming they have been deleted as part of a cover-up (quite a long one I know, but could have saved DS a few headaches).
