Chester Borrows draws a long bow today.
Alf makes this observation while acknowledging that his judgement is steeped in envy, because he missed out on the junket that Borrows is now defending.
The best means of defence, as Chester clearly knows, is attack.
So he is sticking it into the media for making a fuss about the cost of the junket that took him and a gaggle of other MPs to bits of Europe.
He is saying this treatment of the Speaker’s delegation shows it takes New Zealand’s democracy too lightly.
