Yeap, I can see the government doing that.
Took me a while to click that the story was satirical, nothing would surprise me nowadays.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Oi, Simon, fix your hair!’ and that was pretty demoralising, to be honest, and I just stopped. I didn’t try to fix it anymore. It was halfway fixed and they were still being mean, and after a while, what’s the point? Those are the stakes we’re dealing with.”

The question now is, is this story satire, a comedy, a dark comedy or for real.
If its for real, would you want any of these monkeys in your government, and can you ever see Simon Bridges as the Prime Minister?
National Party leader Simon Bridges has blamed the leaking of his travel expenses on National MP Jami-Lee Ross, who he says may be facing suspension.
However, just moments before Bridges announced the result of the party's leak inquiry, Ross unleashed a barrage of tweets, saying he had been falsely accused.
Ross, who went on leave for "personal issues" earlier this month, said Bridges was attempting to "pin" the leak inquiry on him.
"Some months ago I fell out with Simon. I have internally been questioning leadership decisions he was making, and his personal poll ratings which show he is becoming more and more unlikeable in the public’s eyes."
Ross also accused Bridges of breaking electoral law by altering his electoral donation returns, something Bridges said was a mistake and was amended on advice from the Electoral Commission.
But those within the National Party who support Bridges believe the leaking of the electoral returns information was done by Ross as a form of entrapment ahead of the inquiry announcement.
