Mark Mitchell isn’t afraid of a bit of bull

Mark Mitchell, the MP for Rodney isn’t anything like Lockwood Smith when it comes to sports.

Where Lockwood like to wear budgie smugglers and swim at the beach, Mark is into chaps and bulls and the arena of the Rodeo…

He asked the organisers at the Warkworth Rodeo yesterday for the biggest grumpiest one they had and his boys named him Cosgrove because they reckoned if he was a Labour supporter he would give him a harder time.

Mark won the bull ride competition.

That certainly throws down the gauntlet for other MPs….can anyone name a single Labour MP or Green MP that would give that a crack.

    The Greenies will now ask for an enquiry into Rodeos and cruelty to animals.

    It reminds me of this really good photo of Teddy Roosevelt riding a *moose* –

    There wouldn’t be many leaders who’d try that either… ;)
