    Gees…if that was me I would return home to find all my things on the kerbside. Then return to work the following day to be fired.  And so it should be.

    So now there will be no bi-election in Botany because Ross continues to manipulate. The Nats who fought against the waka jumping legislation will be the first to try and use it. I wonder if it applies to elected m.p.’s or just list ones. The enquiry now shifts to who were the women that Ross had affairs with. Will the speaker appoint a qc to find that out or will he do one of his diy enquiries? Of course it is important for us to all know who plays chesterfield rugby with Mr Ross? He is keeping his seat as an independent as he needs to pay the mortgage and nobody will employ him to do anything so he has at least 2 years to get the house sold and the marriage wound up. That might also get him a 3 term pension? What a soap opera? Bridges will be on his last warning and as soon as they can cobble together a leader who hasn’t been playing snanny games, horizontal jogging that is, they can kick off again. Perhaps the 15 likely exes will now all step forward, please, not you Babbs. Perhaps all donations should be declared and all affairs declared also. And all seat purchases declared too. Len Brown you naughty boy look at the example you set. I will admit to being racist and even I was shocked about how Bridges spoke of the Indians and Chinese.

    World leaders have responded to the developing details regarding the death of the Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, either by putting a hold on their diplomatic relationship with Saudi Arabia or signaling their disapproval of how they handled the matter.

    And world leader Jacinda Ardern is silent on the matter.

    I see the gutter press NZ Herald has stooped to a new low calling on Bridges’ mother Ruth, 80, at her home in Tauranga.
    No wonder they’re having trouble selling their rag.

    Well that’s one way of getting rid of your enemies, get the police to have them committed to a mental hospital.  Saves them having to use the Waka bill they voted venomently against.

    If he does have mental problems he has my sympathy and I wish him well ( and to an extend I think he does). If National are using the Act to conveniently get him out of the way he has my sympathy as well.

    Talk about dirty politics
