An unlikely star in the NZ parliament has been found in the form of the MP for Pakuranga, Maurice Williamson. The other night, during the final reading of the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill, he gave a rather fantastic speech for someone on the Right in NZ politics.
Below is a YouTube clip of the entire speech, which has been viewed over 900,000 times. Have only seen excerpts of it on the news, but what I have seen is quite amazing! It was totally unexpected, and he is getting so much press over it, both here and overseas. He has just been given the green light by the PM to appear on Ellen!
This whole business reminded me of the beginning of the Glen Miller Band song ‘The Joker.’ Enjoy.
