Not another word

It looks like Speaker Lockwood Smith has decided he has had enough of Lianne Dalziel.

Worst of all, after Bill English took a question from his own side, so he could criticise Labour, the Speaker took aim at the humble Patsy: “I will not tolerate Patsy questions being used to attack the Opposition”.

So that’s that then, no more questions from Lianne Dalziel. Aaron Gilmore will be devastated.
