Ouch! Harsh smackdown for Charlie Shovel

Oh Dear, Campbell really climbs into Charlie Shovel or Gladys as he is affectionately known.

Charlie Shovel , Gladys, Charles Chauvel

What follows is a non story really about an MP most of you have never heard of, getting frustrated with some noisy children on a flight from Auckland to Wellington.

What’s revealed by this non event?

Firstly the sense of entitlement felt by Mr Chauvel, an opposition list MP who whilst traveling at the taxpayers expense doesn’t want to mix with the taxpayers children it seems. That is the sort of let “them eat cake” attitude that goes some way towards explaining why Labour’s in opposition.
