Angry Birds was Phil Goff’s favourite game during the election and now I think it should be the nickname for Trevor Mallard after his little outburst in the house last night. Obviously still smarting from his “Banks Spank” at question time he reacted quite irrationally.
Mallard plays this churlish little game and purposively mis-pronounces Jami-lee Ross’ name. He got pulled up by the Chairman last night and then chaos ensued as Jami-lee Ross stood and said he didn;t take offence at Angry Bird not remembering his name, he realises that Angry Bird has early onset demetia.
What you see next is 5 minutes of vein popping anger…looks like his anger management classes need to be retaken.
Of course Angry Bird forgets that he is 58 and clearly an older New Zealander, and hypocritically after just attacking Jami-lee Ross for disrespecting older New Zealanders sets about disrespecting John Banks who at 65 is older than Angry Bird.
Poor old Angry Bird…after sticking up for Jacinda repeatedly last week, and for Clare Curran today they left him adrift to be out sledged by the youngest National backbencher.
Louise Upston gets up him later with a lsedge mentioning his “Banks Spank” on question time…before he gets onto trying to have a go at Judith Collins.
He really needs to get his anger sorted….otherwise “Angry Bird” is going to stick
