Nice exchange in the House

Dr DON BRASH (Leader of the Opposition) to the Prime Minister: Does she have confidence in the Minister of Foreign Affairs; if so, why?

Hon Dr MICHAEL CULLEN (Deputy Prime Minister) on behalf of the Prime Minister: Yes, because he is a hard-working and conscientious Minister.

Dr Don Brash: Does she believe the behaviour of the Minister in Washington yesterday, when he interrupted Senator John McCain, potentially the next President of the United States, as the senator was in the middle of answering questions from journalists; if so, why?

Hon Maurice Williamson: Ah McCain, you've done it again.
