Impotent

NZ Herald

John Armstrong is harsh on the pathetic and lack-lustre effort int eh house yesterday. Basically he is saying they are as impotent as eunuchs:

An unidentifiable voice coming from the Government benches summed up question time in Parliament yesterday afternoon: what happened to the big hit from the Opposition?

What indeed – especially given this was the first day the House had met since the wrangling between the Government and Maori over water rights and the partial sale of state-owned Mighty River Power had put the Maori Party’s attachment to National as a support partner at risk.

Labour leader David Shearer had upped the ante earlier in the day by saying that the sales process was now variously a “complete shambles” and a “complete train wreck”.

At least Labour tried, however. Green co-leaders Metiria Turei and Russel Norman were absent, as was Mana’s Hone Harawira. New Zealand First confined itself to a couple of enigmatic questions from Winston Peters.
