Nandor finished in Parliament yesterday, and went out with a bang.
“This is our national legislature. We should treat it and the positions we hold with more respect.”
Mr Tanczos said the media carried blame as well.
“The buzzards who sit watching us up there, waiting for the next political corpse to pick over … They will always report a fight, but stand to talk about anything real and most of them flap their wings and fly away.”
He said the first thing he did when he came to Parliament was buy a watch, and he had been “cuffed to the prison bars of time” ever since.
“So today I remove that shackle, because when I look at the state of our rivers, our atmosphere and our people I don’t need a watch to tell me what time it is.”
And with that he left the debating chamber, walking over the shattered remains of his time piece.
Because nothing says “I’m holding my position in respect” like walking out of parliment over a mess you just spread all over the carpet.
Not to mention the respect he shows voters who don’t actually have the luxury of smashing their watches due to having to work hard and pay the $1000 of tax per month that the government has been taking unnecessarily with Green party support.
Thank goodness that we can name at least one Green party who’s destructive policies were held back.
Anyway, bring on Red Russel. Judging by his contributions to Frog Blog, the Greens are going to have lots of fun in the polls in upcoming weeks as people get a full dose of the new co-leader.
