Own Goal - Cullen Head Butts Ref
The ribs are aching again.
Do you remember that amazing South American soccer player, Rodolfo? Well he's just put the boot into Clarkullen and they are squirming because he's from the UN and he reports to their HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION. Bugger it, he's a professor as well. Yeah but only a Mexican professor so he's obviously second rate.
Oh dear dear. He invited himself to New Zild and they didn't dare refuse. Here's the pathetic spin from Clark:
Prime Minister Helen Clark described the committee's process as "most unsatisfactory", and downplayed the body's status.
"This is a committee that sits on the outer edges of the UN system."
Professor Stavenhagen, a Mexican researcher who reports to the UN Commission on Human Rights, arrives this week.
He will attend four hui, including a major one at Parihaka at the weekend, where he can expect to hear severe criticism of the Government.
Deputy Prime Minister Michael Cullen, who crafted the foreshore law, will meet Professor Stavenhagen. Dr Cullen declined to comment yesterday.
Tell us again Helen about how important it is to have the UN decide what colour Antipodean toilet paper is acceptable and appropriate.
