Hardly surprising, but ex-Green MP Keith Locke is upset because John Key is not attending the funeral of Hugo Chavez.
I guess its not surprising that Mr Locke would want us to honour a Human Rights abuser who gave himself indefinite ruling power. I mean he likes Hamas, Ahmadinejad, North Korea and Pol Pot too.
It's just surprising that this is news. Actually it's not, but even Fairfax New Zealand like stirring. The New Zealand Greens themselves kept quiet. Also unsurprising - it would be embarrassing if New Zealanders found out their true opinions.
