Hasn’t anyone noticed the irony?

Is it just me, but the loudest complainers of the MPs going to Eastern Europe on the Speakers tour, 4 of whom are retiring at the next election, are the folks over at Kiwiblog?

Which in itself isn’t very groundbreaking, as anything the taxpayer has to fork out for is a waste of money.

However, surely this must be the definition of the widely overused term these days Irony. According to Kiwiblog, come the end of the year this country will be rid of the evil lesbian feminist environmentalist socialist dictators for good, and the new dawn will usher in some sort of conservative nirvana.

got it yet? Well here’s the clincher…

So these kind folk, are slagging off these MPs on the speakers tour of Eastern Europe for get this, studying how post Socialist States have made the transition to economic democracy.

The way they have been wailing and nashing over at Kiwiblog (something about death of democracy, end of free speech, dictatorships etc etc) I would have thought we would need all the info we could get about post-Socialist transitional democracies.
