At last, a good use for a much over-used word. It is somehow fitting that one of Parliament's least effective MPs, NZ First's Barbara Stewart, should have a bill to reduce the number of MPs from 121 to 100 pulled from the ballot box. In fact, this is probably the most useful thing she has done in the three and a half years she's been there.
