Grant Robertson’s maiden speech

  • December 13th, 2008

Maiden speeches are revealing, so I’ve been waiting for the Parliamentary website to post them. I can not find even the advances for them.

Grant’s notes are accessible from his blog post. It is consistent with his campaign – awesomely ‘on message’.

"a vision for a modern, inclusive New Zealand, where we equip our people with the skills and knowledge to succeed in an ever globalising world. A New Zealand where we celebrate and promote diversity, and where we truly are our brother and sister’s keepers, and ensure that every one of us can achieve our potential"

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven a link to Kiwiblog’s caption contest on the DomPost photo of the event.

I liked best no 27 – tknorriss – "When I pull with my right hand, look to the right…."

Commenters with abundantly more imagination than MPs. Systems normal.


Stephen, I thought it best when you stated your earlier polite concession and congratulations. This simply seems bitter.
