NZ herald gives us the low down on the tamihere saga.

Al I have to say is hats of to tamihere, not only is he a real mans man but he has the blunt honesty that we need in parliment. I wish we had one (and only one) of him for al lthe major parties, then the voters could decide who they wanted to vote for based on the truth rather than the sugar coated image they wish to portray.

"You can spend two hours with Maharey and walk away none the wiser but you've got three screeds of paper full of notes. So there's operators like him who are very smarmy, very clever, but no substance. It's all about status.'

"We wouldn't survive without (Finance Minister Michael) Cullen -- he can cut a deal on a piece of legislation, he can change a single word in a piece of legislation without those other bastards (coalition partners) knowing about it."

I always thought Cullen was all class. Hats off to him.

You've been very selective in the quotes you've chosen in your hats off tribute to JT. How about the other ones which reveal not that he "calls it like it is", but that he is a misogynistic, homophobic, deluded macho tosser?

the hats of tribute is for Cullen.
I would hate to see the tail wagging the dog like NZfirst waggd national (or worse) and thus the greens or united future running the country.
I always wondered why the Labour party always seemed to get its way.
