What on earth is wrong with Peter Dunne?

And why aren’t hordes of women and leftie liberals not demanding his head?


The above is from Dunne’s Twitter account, where he’s regularly favouring red blooded young male sort of material.

Thing is, he’s a elderly politician.  It’s not a good look for most people, and any PR person or Chief of Staff would normally ensure they steer ministers away from this sort of public risk taking.

If his account is hacked, it’s been at it for a long, long time and he has done nothing to stop it.

Or, he really was infatuated with a younger Irish lass showing him the glad eye and doing a little e-flirting of her own.

Twitter is full of people who are outraged at the smallest things, but they seem to be quite ok with an elderly minister promoting his interest in scantily clad young women and “Sexting Fails”.

Not sure what amazes me more:  the fact he has the stones to do it, or the fact nobody seems to be offended by it.

  • I bet you he doesn’t realise it’s sitting there as a long list for everyone to look through and is using an app that doesn’t show him the Favourites view easily so he just thinks it’s a low impact “Like”.

      Never “like” anything you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see!

  • Rodger T

    I suspect Dunne is so irrelevant ,people just don`t care.

  • Reaper

    I took a look at his Twitter page yesterday (I think it was, or the day before) and saw that he had re-tweeted an article from the BBC about medical cannabis for kids with epilepsy. I had a glimmer of hope. Now it seems he has just gone mental.

  • Fat Sally

    Go have a look who he is following. Makes interesting reading. Some clangers that stand out are “Sexual Desires” and “Girl Relations”

    Mind you he also follows Shane Jones so was probably put on to them by him.

    • Intrigued

      Omg! You’re right. It beggars belief!

  • oldmanNZ

    Just show you he is just a human as rest of us.
    You get to an age, where you just dont care anymore and look at what you like. Everyone else looks at, you go to a beach and you see the same thing,

  • Ratchette

    I agree, not good. What on earth dose he think he is doing ? He should loosen that bow tie and get blood flowing into that brain of his.

  • T. Akston

    So what ?

    At least he has the courage to be who he is, and we can see what we are getting instead of having some Walter Mitty character who is one thing in public, another in private. I’ll give him some credit for that (he’s still a political waste of space, but)

    The selective outrage is another thing altogether. If it had been Judith Collins or John Key it would be a federal case for the MSM. And, I have to say, all the flakey people who encourage them by consuming their light entertainment.

    Having come across numerous sleezy older men. Dunn he had always given me the impression he is in that category so no surprise. Perhaps he has been smoking too much of the product his son supports.

  • Cancer Man

    Im voting United Future now!

  • steve and monique

    Well the old goat has a pulse. Good on him if that is all he has to hide.

  • HSV325

    Some nice eye candy! That will give the old boy some street cred. He must be trying to appeal to the younger male voter

  • timemagazine

    Poor Mr. Dunn, after reading your post his whole day will be ruined.

    • steve and monique

      Unlikely, has better things to look at.

  • Catriona

    It doesn’t matter how old blokes are – they’re always on the prowl!

    • Dog Breath

      Add all men are rapists, I apologise for being a man and that pretty much condemns all men. Accordingly I can’t possibly be a man I hung up my antlers years ago.

  • KGB

    One only has to look at his hair to know he’s still in the game. Older men who are vain about their hair often drive little sport cars and cruise. Harmless fool.

    • taurangaruru

      Are you suggesting his hair is not the only part of his anatomy that is still capable of standing up?
      btw he isn’t a harmless fool, anyone that gets taken in by Vance the vamp & leaks Government reports is not harmless. Stupid yes, harmless no.

  • Grocersgirl

    Perhaps hordes of women and leftie liberals don’t bother checking into PD’s Twitter account.

  • Goldfish

    I’m picking that he’s not in full control of his account. The pictured items are link bait, so his account has been compromised, he just doesn’t know it or doesn’t know how to fix it. That would also explain the curious follows he’s got.

    Still, that’s no excuse. He should change his password and seek some professional assistance.

    “Not sure what amazes me more: the fact he has the stones to do it, or the fact nobody seems to be offended by it.” I’d put it down to nobody actually gives a damn.
