Is NZ ready for a Gay Prime Minister?

The elephant in the room of the Labour leadership battle is whether or not Grant Robertson can actually become Prime Minister because he is gay.

Personally I think who Grant sleeps with shouldn’t be a factor in whether he becomes Prime Minister.

But that is not what is being said in places that are more conservative than classical liberal. Like South Auckland…and the five seats where Labour actually won the party vote.

In order to really find out though Labour should get their version of Pinko Farrar to sort out some research that says one way or another whether New Zealand will vote for a poofter.

And while they are at it they should research into whether a double chinned, cardy wearing, civil servant from the set of Gliding On can become prime minister.

Another question would be whether or not anyone wants to have a beer with Grant. It looks like Alf is comfortable drinking beer with Grant, but there is Grant with a takeaway trim latte.

There are just a couple of rules for politicians to make leader.

You have to pass the blink test…and you have to be the sort of bloke people want to have a beer with.

I doubt that Grant Robertson has either of those qualities.
