Wow! Pigs do fly

Wonders will never cease, it seems the government has worked out that pigs really do fly.

Cities are emptying out for the school holidays and so is parliament in Wellington.

Parliament is in recess this week so several ministers are off overseas.

Prime Minister John Key is in China with officials hoping to improve the free trade agreement New Zealand already has with China, and a business delegation is travelling with him. He has two ministers with him — Nathan Guy and Todd McClay.

Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce is leading a delegation of exporters trying to get government contracts in the US and they’re heading to Washington DC for an event organised by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

Climate Change Issues Minister Paula Bennett is also in the US to sign the Paris climate change agreement at the UN in New York. She’s also going to Washington DC.  

Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne is in New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem from tomorrow.

He says major themes of the meeting are likely to include the death penalty, new psychoactive substances and the impact of technology.

“New Zealand is one of a number of countries that have in recent years moved towards treating drug use as a health issue, rather than a criminal justice issue.

“While we still have work to do here in New Zealand, it is my view that we are making good progress in how we address wider drug-harm issues,” he said.

As for Peter Dunne…the man is a tragic fool.

Jizzing yourself over seeing Bernie Sanders, a confirmed communist, someone take that man’s ministerial warrant off him.

    Maybe he can try some legal marijuana while he’s over there and become enlightened.

    Unbelievable, surely the melons are jetting off to Iceland to look into to fate of a molusc or some some thing, whose existance is threatened by a projected 30 metre rise in sea level by 2018.

    I believe (although not confirmed) the Labour party are running chook raffles and housie nights during the recess

    • dumbshit

      I believe the chooks are reared “in house”!

      Are these the chickens that have come home to roost and when they run out will they have cooked their own goose?

  • cows4me

    Can we shut down the borders now ?

  • Spiker

    Mrs Spiker met Bernie when she lived in Vermont & he was door knocking. Not something she makes a big deal of. Why Dunne is so keen to name drop who knows..

  • Disinfectant

    As someone who only earns if I have customers and can’t be away in fear of not earning a living.
    If all these politicians are away from N.Z. and not even doing constituency work, should we as taxpayers stop paying them during their absence.

      I don’t have an issue with any of this. The trade stuff in particular should pay back in orders of magnitude.

  • Rick H

    School holidays again . .please, I didn’t need to know that.

    Now, the rest of the poor starving school kids will die of starvation, without their free breakfasts and lunches.
