The Ngapuhi Nymphomaniac. The Taitokerau Tugger. The Minister of Sleaze has packed it in on the eve of a general election.
When the lamestream media made the announcement last night that Jones was leaving, we wondered what scandal had befallen Shane Jones this time round – did he take money, was it corruption & illegal favours, another sex scandal? Alas, it was a scandal of a different sort – Murray McCully and Prime Minister John Key dangled a ‘bag full of silver’ in the face of the ‘Tugger’ and he was all theirs.
Meet NZ’s Ambassador for PONR!
So Jones heads off to some foreign country to take up a cushy ambassador post (in the Pacific, made especially for him so the TV report says). The ambassador positions are usually reserved for the rich old-boys connected to the party and the various suck-ups that appear from time to time, Shane Jones.
Lets hope that he ends up in Mongolia, Zimbabwe, or even Ukraine! Bye bye SHAME Jones. Shame! Shame! Shame!
Jones leaves his people poorer and more unemployed than ever. That is his legacy.
