#UTU – Like being savaged by a toothless Chihuahua


Aaron Gilmore will be giving his valedictory speech shortly…I can’t hardly wait.

I’m reliably informed that he is going to name me. 


Here is what that will do for me…

best ever

    Is there a URL where I can watch it live?

  • AntonK95

    His speech is just him trying to make everyone feel sorry for himself

  • AntonK95

    Where was the UTU!!!!

  • Well that was a disappointment…so much for all the threats…

    • Andy

      That’s his Utu

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      He is gone Whale. Forgive him.

  • Andy

    All over, he exited with humility.

  • get a grip

    Whale, Guess you will have to find another subject to get excited about –
    Gilmore is gone with no “outbursts”. No naming :-(
    So same sex marriage has gone, Gilmore has gone…..
    but at least the svelt German is still on the sidelines waiting to give you some more opportunities for excitement :-)

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      Whale Oil – Please focus you attention on the mean Green woman. She is talking way too much now.

      • Honcho

        Don’t know why she gets so much airtime these days, media goes to froggy before the sheep these days (though sheep has been known to swan off to NY to check his millions with leisure).
        The McGilligully reject doesn’t exactly have a face for TV, though she is worth listening to for my daily chuckle.

        • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

          Honcho – I think it is a serious effort by the left leaning mafia MSM to project her as a credible minister in Sheep’s cabinet. That is why hippie Norman is talking a back seat and letting the frog croak. She tried to raise a debate today in parliament about the SKY City convention centre deal. The speaker rejected her request. Serves her well.

  • High_Tory

    Humble speech. Impressed.

    • Justsayn

      Impressed might be going a bit far, but yes, probably as good as he could have done for the Nats under the circumstances.

      • BJ

        Humble had Happy (Gilmore) win the last round

  • Good on Gilmore for salvaging what remains of his dignity.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    I am impressed with Guiltmore. At least he exited with dignity. Sheep with all his coke and popcorn was the idiot at the end of the day. Sheep was expecting something bad to emerge from his speech. Sorry Sheep, now get on with life.

    • John1234

      Yeah, Shearer’s comments about coke and popcorn were unbecoming of a party leader. Yet another clear indication that he’s not fit for office.

      • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

        John1234 – I think Sheep is being coached by his cronies to look tough and talk tough. But he looks like s**t any way. As long as he remains the leader of the labourers, John Key can breathe a sigh of relief.

  • Dave

    Gilmore admitted his behavior was terrible, and thanked Key, had a minor dig at the media, and then exited. It was a good speech for someone who has acted so poorly for over a week. However, that said, beware of a toothless tiger (or even Chihuahua), I believe he will not be able to let go, and he will have another shot somehow at the media and WOBH. Aaron, when you read this, please move on, you cant and wont win, time is a great healer.

  • Justsayn

    His best utu was served – to deprive you of publicity and a topic to fill a few more posts.

    Please don’t send him goading texts to try and get him going again (I know you have looked at your mobile more than once already contemplating it) – doing that would be to repeat his error and could harm the Nats by having this drag on further.

  • fdfdfdsfdf

    A dignified speech. It was well done.

  • Michael

    Damp squid

    • Justsayn

      hehe, do you mean squib or is there something fishy about this?

      • Ronnie Chow

        Nup , Squid ain’t fish .

      • Michael

        You schooled me – I always thought it was squid…

    • Damp squib i think you mean

  • John Q Public

    What was all the tosh about being “elected”? Who elected him?

    • island time

      Yeah that was a bit rich. He will struggle to make any list surely in the future. It is quite incredible that he loses his seat for what he did when you see the other things that MP’s have done that are actually illegal.

    • Peej

      Voting Phil Heatley in the electorate vote might have been okay, but by voting as we did with our party vote, we voted for Gilmore. Didn’t we all do similar?
