Martin Doyle Cartoon: When oafs quote from Shakespeare

Martin Doyle Cartoon: When oafs quote from Shakespeare

Given Dame Susan Devoy's caution to political parties re racist comments, and the heightened attention to any such, Steve Gibson's inflammatory use of the term "Shylock" [with its long, long pedigree of anti-Semitism] to describe the PM is a disgrace. Total ignorance [his defence] might enable him to feel at home in our modern parliament but his blurt leaves a sick taste in the mouths of New Zealanders.
