Who is Parliament’s Most Useless MP?

Parliament has a lot of vacant minds, and I’m going to highlight them.

It is not looking for the most obnoxious, or offensive or stupid, just the most useless. MPs who will not be missed, and have never achieved anything during their time in parliament. Some will not even be noticed because they are that useless. This will be a tough challenge because some are so dead set useless that not even their electorate knows who they are. 

Readers should nominate their pick for the most useless MP in the comments section or on the tip line.

Nominations for Trevor Mallard will not be accepted. Trevor may have tanked Labours 2011 campaign by trying to steal underpants but he has had a long career of being noticed.

UPDATE: Petal has raised a good point with his nomination of Hekia Parata. We do need a distinction. This post is about who is the biggest bludger, who does the least for their fat taxpayer funded salary, who contributes the least to politics.

This blog doesn’t like supporting Hekia Parata as she is f***** useless by many measures, but just not by this one. And she cares about maori education so she can’t be totally useless.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
