Chester Borrows: Bigot

While we're tackling MPs for their bigotry and homophobia, here's what National's Chester Borrows had to say on Back Benches last night about the prospect of reviving the Hero Parade:

I'm not in support of a hero parade. Well, I am in support of a hero parade, but I don't think that's a hero parade because actually they're not heroes...

Heroes are people like Willie Apiata. Heroes are people who have done something... I don't think a hero is someone who wears leather shorts singing YMCA down Queen Street.

What a bigot. The people of Whanganui must be really proud of being represented in this way.

But then, Borrows' views aren't that uncommon in the National Party. Just look at their voting record on the issue.
