Alf notes with great admiration the efforts of Labour MP Louisa Wall to turn lots more blokes into sheilas and lots more sheilas into blokes.
Ms Wall, for constituents who might have forgotten, is the Labour bint who introduced the legislation that legalised same-sex marriage.
Now she is banging on about the transgender community needing more support than it is getting from the Government.
More particularly, she wants taxpayers to cough up for more transgender folk to get the surgery they crave to turn them from one gender to the other.
She said more than 60 people were on the waiting list for sex reassignment surgeries and action needed to be taken.
“These are people who are wanting access to what is a medical procedure, who can’t in New Zealand because we don’t have the surgeons.”
So it seems Ms Wall’s demands are a bit more complicated than it seemed at first blush.
First, she wants more money for more surgery.
But second, she wants more surgeons trained in the delicate art of putting nuts where a fanny used to be and vice versa.
