Garrick Tremain: Honours!

Here is Garrick Tremain's cartoon commentary on the new New Year's Honours announcement that Trevor Mallard has received a knighthood!!!

Garrick Tremain is one of New Zealand's best known artists and political cartoonists. With a background in farming and advertising, he has a wonderful ability to capture in images exactly what people are thinking in a way that makes us laugh. You can see his more of his work on his website HERE.

This list must have been put together
and activated pre election. Otherwise how could Mallard have been knighted?

Once again, Garrick, you've got it exactly spot on.

Never thought much of the New Years Honours list.

But now, any merit in it has been completely destroyed by this award. What a disgrace!

Clearly, threatening behaviour, bullying, making unsubstantiated and false allegations, costing the taxpayer hundreds of thousands in legal fees, and just acting like a clown in general gets you a knighthood these days.

Roll up Te Pati Maori and the Greens!

Trev was Speaker so I suspect the Honour was automatic.

The whole concept has long been dishonored (sorry, couldn't resist) and discredited by the awarding of rewards to many simply doing their (well paid and underworked) job (often badly).

Others, of course, have been honored for being loud little communists and racists.

The awards mean nothing. I just want the pay packet.
