I Love JT

John Tamihere is now the most effective opposition MP National have. His honest and candid rant via Investigate today guarantees him the Tamaki Makaurau seat no matter what banner he chooses to run under. Speaking the truth is a rare trait among politicians today and despite what the media says voters like loose cannons who represent their electorate rather than the party head office. He said so many things that I've been wanting someone from the opposition to say for months now, among them this gem
(The Parliamentary press gallery are) utterly and totally useless. And sycophantic. You know and I know there's no investigative journalism done in that bloody gallery. In the information age, we've got more ignorant people out there than there's ever been.
Never have truer words been spoken.
John will no doubt pay a heavy price for breaking the first rule of the Labour Party - Don't talk about the Labour Party.
Will JT be the excuse Helen needs to call a snap-election?

Oh I don't know, there are some things he's said that I totally agree with and to some agree he's actually an ok politician but on the other hand backstabbing other members of parliament to a well known journalist wasn't very smart, obviously he had to have known that it wasn't going to be off the record.
