ed:..who..?..i hear you ask..?..relax..!..there is no reason to know who he is..he is a backbench list mp from the national party..until now famous only in national party circles for having lost so many election-electorate-campaigns..yet has skived in on the list..
..and having seen him speak in parliament – i noted at the time that foster-bell is that unusual beast..the young-fogey…a man in manners who is much older than his actual age..where does he have left to go..?
..i also called him brownlees’ mini-me..(excuse me for chuckling (again) @ my own joke..)
..and now some are evincing surprise at two things about mr foster-bell..
one is that he appears to be extremely careless with staff – having two at any given time – yet having hired/fired twelve of them in the last three years…that is a very high turnover..and there are also accusations that he is a bully-boy..
..and he is a list mp who lives in wellington – yet in the last 12 months he has racked up a serious travel-bill..(sixty-one grand..)..paid for by the taxpayer…and as any funded travel has to be on parliamentary-business – people are asking ‘where’ and ‘why?’..
..not unreasonable of them to be asking that..eh..?
