NEWS: Green streak

This is one of those stories that just make us howl.

New Zealand Green Party MP Keith Locke made a bet with a rival, Rodney Hide of the ACT Party, that if Rodney won in last Saturday's election he would run naked through the town.

Rodney was an outside bet as far as the media were concerned. And of course Rodney won!

Now I am not sure that many other MP's would be true to their word, let's face it, they are not known for keeping election promises, but Mr Locke said:

the Greens were a party of their word...we do not want to break an election promise.

He will be running naked through his Epsom constituency some time soon. Brilliant!

Apparently he intends to run in an 'artistic manner smothered in body paint', presumably to hide any blushes and avoid breaking any public nudity laws.

A loincloth has been offered and paramedics are standing by.
