Whaleoil Awards – Best Opposition MP


Very few nominations, which is pretty indicative of the state of the opposition.

National’s poll drops are totally self inflicted and the opposition can barely hold their heads up with pride.

For me though there are a few that can.

The nominees are:

Chris Hipkins – for not losing his head and following along with silly hits like Mallard, Little and that newbie  from Dunedin have a habit of doing. He has held Hekia Parata to account and shown up Nanaia Mahuta for the lazy trougher and token MP she is.

Kevin Hague – for calmly dealing with issues not personality. His handling of ACC and also his professionalism with the marriage equality bill show he has some futre.

Russel Norman – love him of hate him he made himself look like the leader of the opposition when David Shearer failed to show up all year.

Winston Peters – he is long past his prime but he is stroppy when he can stay off the sauce and get the words out. best if he left the wig at home now.
