John Roughan, normally a supporter of National, was not that impressed with Lockwood Smith's refusal to grant Russel Norman's request for an urgent debate. Mr Roughan goes as a far as to say that if the circumstances outlined in the request for an urgent debate were insufficient, it is hard to imagine any circumstances that will justify a request being granted. Too right. I listened to the request and immediately thought we would be up for an urgent debate.
Meanwhile Keeping Stock was mortified at the request. It takes all sorts.
