Why weren’t Grant and Andy drinking working men’s beer?

Andrew Little and Grant Robertson sat down to drink beer and try to look blokesy to middle New Zealand.

But they failed.

For a start Robbo seems to have some sort of magical fairy beer in his hands. Did Grant really want to present himself as the piss fairy?

On closer inspection it seems that they were drinking Tuatara craft beer, not Lion Red.

So not only did they not choose a real working man’s beer they chose some liberal elite poofy craft beer.

It shows how really out of touch they are with middle New Zealand.  

Tuatara beer costs $18.99 per 6 bottles, on special,  at Liquor King

Real men’s beers like Lion Red cost $24.99 for 15 bottles.

Or for the Southern Man, Speights at $24.99 for 15 bottles.

Or for the Waikato working man you can get Waikato Draught for $24.99 for 15 bottles.

Labour could have chose any of those working men’s beers, instead they chose Tuatara.

Now we know why Little has no assets.  He pisses it against the wall with elite food and drink.

Andrew Little and Grant Robertson would do well to learn the words:

There’s only one beer we drink around here mate,

And it’s not blue, black label, double coloured brown or green,

It’s Red mate, like a fire engine and it comes in a bottle or a can and it’s got a little Lion on it.

Lion Red used to be the Labour party, now it is Tuatara, a rare lizard on the endangered list.

If only Labour would spend more time talking to middle New Zealand instead of interviewing the piss fairy.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.
