Anna Paquin and her hubby show their Green streak – but they didn’t arrive in the capital on bicycles

Warning: if you play with these things you could finish up supporting the Greens.

Warning: if you play with these things you could finish up turning green.

Alf observes that Anna Paquin, an actress, and her husband, Stephen Moyer, have landed in Wellington.

Whoopee.

The Herald on Sunday account of this earthquake-shaking event goes on to say their arrival lends some heavyweight celebrity endorsement to the Greens.

The Greens doubtless need to be propped up by celebrities, given that their policies don’t amount to much.

We are reminded that Paquin grew up in Wellington and we are told that she and her family are understood to be staying with her mother.

This means the Herald hacks didn’t bother to confirm this bit of their information.

Then comes the interesting bit:

Paquin has been tweeting support for Greens Party co-leader Russel Norman and offered to help put up election hoardings. Paquin’s sister, Katya, is Norman’s partner.

Moyer went a step further in his support, posting pictures to his Instagram account of defaced National hoardings.

“One of the great joys of driving down to Wellington town every day is seeing how the National Party posters have been defaced,” he wrote.

And so we learn that Paquin has married a bloke who approves of vandalism.

We further learn he has eschewed the bicycle – the favoured mode of travel for the muesli munchers – in favour of the emission-spewing motor car.

More fascinating…

Moyer has also been getting back to his childhood.

“Am more excited by my bro-in-law’s Hot Wheels collection than a grown man ought to be,” he tweeted.

Alf imagines Moyle is talking about the Hot Wheels that kids play with.

Alf would rather watch the real thing and regrets not having been able to see Hot Wheels driver Tanner Foust set a new ramp-to-ramp jump record of 332 feet a few years ago.

The main event was the annual Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but it was Foust’s stunt before the big race that stole the limelight.

The general election, of course, is the main event for the Grumbles.

We trust the limelight isn’t too much stolen by celebrities and their stunts.
