TV3’s Pedro Gower has run a clip of Phil Goff’s offensive behaviour at Select Committee:
However, Pedro goes on to say that he can’t recall the F word being used at Select Committee before and it’s ‘uncharted’ territory.
I can’t recall it being used previously at select committees either, but it has been used on the floor of the House.
After this little outburst – Steve Maharey went on to retire from politics. Tick tock Phil Goff?
For the record: NZFirst’s Ron Mark also famously flipped the bird in Parliament too… and the Labour Speaker punished TV3 for showing it!
