Description

Trevor Mallard and Gerry Brownlee went on a $24k 24 hour diplomatic mission to Tokyo when the AB's just happened to be playing there and all I got was this scarf.

I had a few choice words to say about all this on the news (see 1News https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/they-re-taking-mickey-david-seymour-lambastes-colleagues-24k-japan-rugby-junket and Newshub https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2018/11/trevor-mallard-gerry-brownlee-defend-24k-two-day-trip-to-japan.html)

Trev tried to buy my silence with the gift of an authentic Canterbury Brave Blossoms scarf from the trip. Since he's the Speaker of Parliament it was kind of an offer I couldn't refuse, but you can benefit as the owner of this unique piece of Kiwi junketrobillia, and raise money for a great cause.

What is the great cause? Well. On November 15 I'll be going over the edge and abseiling 17 stories down a Queen Street building to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. When children get sick they can feel like their life has been taken away before it got started. MAWF give them on special wish to focus on something positive. It could be to meet their hero, to have a musical instrument, to go to Disneyland... Whatever a kid wants they give their all to make it come true. Obviously the wishes cost money so I'm doing this to raise money for the Foundation.

Because Trev is a great sport (fanatic) he has promised to sign it. I have texted Gerry but he might be out of credit because I haven't heard back, will update as details come to hand. This will be a very authentic piece of memorabilia if he comes through, or if he doesn't.

Please bid generously and turn this wee political faux pas into something beautiful for New Zealand's kids, plus get a little taxpayer value for yourself out of Trev and Gezza's wee junket.

p.s. If you scarves aren't your thing but you'd like to support Make a Wish you can still donate here: https://secure.makeawishnz.org/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?RegistrationID=1226705

    Funny. But it actually makes sense to promote NZ by taking Japanese leaders to see the All Blacks. Would you prefer they just gave them an All Blacks scarf? mylesaway(449)09:33 am, Fri, 9 Nov

    In that case you should be proud to own this monument to sports diplomacy. At the current bid this is a steal. trade_dave(11) • Friday, 9 November 2018

    Sorry to hear that, I’ve generally found Gerry is pretty professional so I’m surprised he hasn’t replied. Maybe call his electorate office in Ilam? trade_dave(11) • Saturday, 10 November 2018
