We can all remember Trevor Mallard’s Moa announcement recently. The story hasn’t died yet, unlike the Moa. Michael Woodhouse tweeted the following image on the weekend.
We can all hope that our MPs will engage in sophisticated, educated debate about issues that voters find important. But they are people, and they will all enjoy giving their fellow MPs a bit of a ribbing.
But this should also serve as a warning to MPs, on all sides of the house, that messaging and the way policies are announced play key roles in how they are accepted, and social media presents a method where people can easily take digs at you when you don’t get it right.
