All but speechless

If a politician gives a speech and nobody willingly shows up to hear it, does he make a sound? 

The question must have occurred to poor Michael Cullen yesterday when only thirty-six people turned up to hear his pre-Budget briefing in Christchurch, most of whom were paid to be there.

Crikey, even the Libertarianz can pull more than that -- and make better sense.

    Ha ha, serves him right!

    I wonder if Michae Cullen would pay $160 to hear himself speak?

    Peter is not right wing...(and presumably does not want to sleep with you)
