Arrogant twit

Written by 

Your old mate is unsurprised at how much arrogance is taking over Government MPs – after only one year in power.

A good example is when Horticulture NZ recently made a submission on proposed new employment laws and the negative impact these would have on growers and their businesses. Hort NZ chief executive Mike Chapman says he was surprised by the antics of Labour MP Kieran McAnulty who dismissed the organisation’s concerns as “utter nonsense”.

Chapman says Hort NZ submitters were left speechless when they were told they did not understand what the Bill proposes. However, the Hound is not surprised. He reckons the “utter nonsense” is that an arrogant little twit like McAnulty gets to sit in Parliament and make stupid laws that impact on employers and people trying to run businesses.
