It’s been four years since The Australian journo Ean Higgins landed in Kiwi Nationals leader Gerry Brownlee’s worst graces, after the reporter asked a rather pointed question at a Pike River press conference. And he’s still persona non grata over the Tasman, if recent comments by Brownlee are any indication.

    ” ..an immortal example of Aussie arrogance.”

    I think he meant to say murdock arrogance?

    A tosspot working for The Australian? I very much doubt it.
    Typical of our near neighbours to think badly of us anyway. If we all holidayed in Queensland instead of Bali and the NZ ski fields we might be better liked.

    Eewww, an unfavourite of MeejaWotch for many years, has an inglorious record which reads like a police blotter.
    Perfect for a Mudorc minion.
