Simon Bridges storms out of Parliament in spat with Speaker Trevor Mallard.

Senior National Party MP Simon Bridges has stormed out of Parliament while declaring Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard a twat.

His colleague Paul Goldsmith also left the debating chamber after an argument with Mallard over his question line.

The run-in is just the latest conflict between the Opposition party and the Speaker, who have repeatedly butted heads this year.

Why the removal of the video of them both leaving the chamber after the spat ?

  1. I thought I grew up in a NZ that is a parliamentary democracy? It isn’t any more. Mallard, the Speaker of the of the House of representatives, THE NZ PARLIAMENT apparently believes it is his personal fiefdom. He rules with an iron fist to protect the Labour leadership and they obviously have no issue with him overstretching his authority as they have not reigned his behavour in. He continues to act in a high-handed autocratic manner after three and a half years as Speaker. Time and time again National have questioned his partisan behaviour without any consequence to him. It is time for Mallard to resign or be forced from the Speakers chair. He is not fit for purpose – time for a vote of no confidence in the Speaker!!!

    • Just watched the clip. I feel the Speaker was too quick to remove the supplementary from Paul Goldsmith and take a view the removal of his last supplementary was not a fair response to Paul Goldsmith or that such behaviour can be justified by the Speaker. This is supposed to be a Parliament. I expect it will be robust from time to time. Paul Goldsmith remained calm and polite.

      Very petty and not appropriate action by the Speaker in my view. Walking out was justified. The motion of no confidence should be put at the next sitting day.

  2. And yes, why was the video clip stopped short? It should have been kept running as a record of proceedings in the Parliament. I would expect nothing less from a government maintaining it is clear and transparent.

  3. Go Simon go
    Attack, attack, attack
    Better yet do that was done to you, time to roll Judith and her woke tards
    Become the opposition again
    Appeal for a Vote of no confidence in Mallard
    Start the seed for a vote of no confidence in Ardern

    Hmmm this politics crap looks easy compared to normal work, maybe I need a career change, how does one get into this if they are not woke/lefty/one of many letters

    • Deeply disappointed in Collins, so far shown little real leadership, no policies worthy of comment and Bridges was right to criticize coster the imposter and the comment on fruity fog that coster as a public servant cannot answer back is wrong, he should just point to the effective actions he has implemented and I haven’t observed any so far. Just wonder if Collins is feeling the heat now that Bridges seems to have got a new mojo?
