How is your Wednesday shaping up?
Labour amendments to the Local Government (Auckland Reorganisation) Bill included changing the council's name to the Funsized Council, the Sons and Daughters of Maui, the Sisters and Brothers of Maui and the Cousins and Aunts and Uncles of Maui. Yes really. And your taxes are paying for such childishness.
Why didn't they raise an amendment calling the it the civil union partner of Maui, did George Hawkins run out of ideas? They`re even dong the amendments in Maori as a delaying tactic - so why not sign language as well, after all, thats one of our official languages. Its a pity MPs don't know sign language.
It's still Wednesday in Parliament, where Labour MPs are moaning on Twitter.Outside, it's Saturday, where Melissa Lee has better things to do. Like Saturday morning sports with the kids.
