Tiger can't spell and now he can't add

hat tip Lukas Rants

We found out the other day that Tiger Mallard can’t spell Invercargill. Yesterday he couldn’t even count.

Mr SPEAKER: By my reckoning and from the advice I have received, the Labour Party has now used its 28 supplementary questions, and that is not counting the one where I gave the Hon Ruth Dyson the opportunity to repeat one of them?I did not count that one.

Hon Trevor Mallard: I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. I know that this is relatively unusual and I am doing something that I have never done before. I am almost certain that I used five supplementary questions. My colleague the whip counted my asking five supplementary questions, which is what I was allocated. Your?

Hon Bill English: Can?t count.

Hon Trevor Mallard: That is the man who should have?

Mr SPEAKER: The member will resume his seat immediately, and that is the end of that point of order.

Not a good look especially when you are wrong.

For someone who is the oppositions chief education spokesperson his lack of numeracy skills are surprising to say the least. What is good for goose is good for the Tiger.
