Deborah Coddington does a live spot on Larry William's NewstalkZB Show each Monday. Today Mary Lambie is filling in for Larry. Asked what she thought about ACT MP's activities Deborah was critical. She surmises Heather is joining the army to glean experience and then likened this to National MP Katherine O'Regan's pointless exercise of going on a benefit to see what it was like. She refused to see any merit in the idea. They appear to be publicity hunting, Deborah says. Yet she was castigated by the ACT party for not being able to keep her personal life out of the papers and now it looks like they are going down the same path! The ACT party was supposed to be about principles, not politics, says Deborah.
There was a fair bit of egging along by Mary Lambie who wants to know who will be left in Parliament to do the work and why are TVNZ are doing an exclusive coverage deal with them. She is interviewing a undisclosed Dancing with the Stars contestant later. If it's Rodney I'm sure he will adequately answer these questions for her. Afterall, Parliament didn't grind to a halt when Deborah went off to Cambridge in 2003.
