Well Tim, they are dodgy

Tim Shadbolt is perplexed.

Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt has been named the most trusted politician in New Zealand.

And his humorous reaction to the news yesterday was perhaps one of the reasons why he topped the list.

“Oh my god, another cross to bear,” Shadbolt said when told a 2013 Readers Digest poll had named him the most trusted politician in the country. ?

“If I am the most trusted politician in New Zealand, I would hate to think what all the others are like.”

They are dodgy as hell Tim.

How about hooking the mayoral concrete mixer on the back of the mayoral car and heading up to Wellington to help fix the damage up there.
