Ryall off to a flyer

Tony “Wardrobe” Ryall, winner last year of Minister of the Year in the Whaleoil Awards is off to a flyer. He has decided not to go and waste huge amounts of taxpayers money flying to a stupid conference in Geneva of the World Health Organisation.

Bloody good show Tony. You are certainly the front runner for this months award simply by doing something sensible.

He could have done better though by not sending some functionary in his place. But that plonker was probably going anyway.

Of course the pinkos are upset.

“This is a missed opportunity for New Zealand to play a key leadership role in global health matters as we have in the past. It’s a rare opportunity because we won’t get elected to the executive board for another 15 years or so.”

Professor Beaglehole, who retired from the WHO in 2007, said the board set the agenda for assembly meetings. “It’s a very influential group.”

Blah, blah, blah whateva! ….Perhaps the retired professor should, you know, stay…well…retired. After a lifetime of sucking off the public tit you would have thought the professor would be enjoying his retirement instead of opening his pie-hole.

Obviously, also, the Labour spokesperson, whoever that is, on Health was probably sunning itself ignoring the mobile.
