Oh, was that really a red light officer?

This really annoys me. The Dunedin South MP appeared at Parliamentary questions this afternoon wearing the team’s old blue, gold and maroon kit in protest at the new lime green colour. Highlanders management controversially announced last week the team would wear a green stripe from next season.

Why was I different to everybody else? Because I was the top spending MP? I wasn’t actually. Because I was the… Continue reading Chris Carter a victim of Homophobia… well, either that or his own pigheaded stupidity
