What on earth is this garbage about?
Kate Hawkesby: What a dag! Is this really how Labour Party MPs dress for a retreat?
The Labour caucus retreat was in Martinborough yesterday, you may’ve seen it on the news, but here’s what I found weird about it: Why was Trevor Mallard there?
Isn’t Parliament’s Speaker supposed to be neutral?
And why did he turn up in a Hawaiian shirt and Bermuda shorts, no less. I know we’re having a heatwave, but that was a crime against fashion.
When even other journalists are attacking your column, you know shit just got real…
…I thought Kate’s hateful attack on a garden in a prison and her weird attack on Meghan Markle were pretty awful columns, but basing an entire one on what MPs wore at a retreat seems so shallow it’s difficult to do anything other than mock it.
I cant wait for Kate Hawkseby’s sartorial criticism for this…
…if casual attire at a Party weekend get away pisses her off, what about National MPs in the debating chamber?
Remind me again how you described Hawaiian shirts Kate?
“Why did he ( Speaker Mallard ) turn up in a Hawaiian shirt and Bermuda shorts, no less. I know we’re having a heatwave, but that was a crime against fashion.”
Please Jesus, let this all be behind the Herald’s new paywall.
