The media is in a lather this morning about Paula Bennett's "Zip it, sweetie" jibe directed towards Jacinda Ardern who was interjecting on Ms Bennett's reply to a question in the House. Likewise, the media got in a lather a few weeks ago when John Key chided Farming Show host Jamie Mackay on his "gay red shirt".
So we can't help but wonder; where is the outrage over Human Rights Commission senior staffer Dr Judy McGregor describing Christopher Finlayson as a "Queen" which we blogged about yesterday? The MSM has been absolutely silent on this.
Perhaps it's OK when the Left does it; that's the only possible explanation. Welcome to New Zealand; the land of double standards and hypocrisy.
