Trevor Mallard has proven, yet again, that he is unfit to be Speaker of the House.
His most "banana-republic" style antic to date is issuing 2-year trespass notices from Parliament against former National MP Matt King, the former Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters, and the Free Speech Union’s own Stephen Franks, a former ACT MP. He is using his authority to silence and banish those who simply engaged in dialogue with political dissidents. We are used to seeing tantrums like this from corrupt autocracies, not mature representative democracies.
Retaining Mallard, after a stunt like this, points to a dangerous rot within our government that silences dissent and opposition.
