Dr Brash feels it is wrong to yell at and behave aggressively toward people in general, and women in particular. So we do have some politeness and respect in the upper echelons of NZ politics.

So we have Prime Minister who thinks that politeness, courtesy and respect are signs of weakness - no wonder our society is becoming such a shambles.

Valued readers, I'd been keen to hear your thoughts on this matter.
