Congratulations to the Minister of Broadcasting Jonathan Coleman for some first class buffoonery.
In Parliament last night Coleman was introducing the taxation bill for the Revenue Minister Peter Dunne.
The Clerk of the House announced the bill's first reading, but Coleman began talking about a completely piece of legislation altogether. But he completely failed to pick up his embarassing blunder.
Coleman serenely carried on reading out his entire 10-minute speech on the wrong bill.
For all round stupidity this must come close to beating Coleman's 2006 performance when he managed to get himself knocked unconscious.
Coleman accepted an invitation to watch U2 from British American Tobacco’s corporate box at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium. Smoke from Coleman’s cigar led to an 'altercation' which saw Coleman knocked out.
