Tyson, Wilkinson. Dumber than a sack full of hammers


The Herald reports 

Mike Tyson: John Key cannot stop me





 Rapist Mike Tyson has brushed off criticism from John Key, saying there is nothing the Prime Minister can do about his entry to New Zealand.

The former world heavyweight boxing champion, 46, will present his Day of the Champions talk in Auckland on November 15.
He was granted a visa despite serving three years of a six-year sentence for raping an 18-year-old woman in 1992. Associate Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson gave his application special dispensation.
Mr Key said the visa decision was "a line ball call".
Speaking from Las Vegas yesterday, Tyson said: "Fortunately, I am coming to New Zealand and there's nothing they can do about it and I'm so sorry, I'm sorry they feel disappointed and I'm just living my life."
He was not sure what to expect on his first visit to New Zealand but wanted to meet Maori - citing his facial tattoo, which he said was inspired by the culture.


Tyson's visa was revoked today by Associate Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson who said the original decision to grant a special direction to Tyson, a convicted rapist, was a finely balanced call.

I think it's called don't fuck with the PM. 

Kate Wilkinson has been particularly hopeless from beginning to end of the whole stupid  saga. Hard to judge between Wilkinson and Tyson  on the stupidity stakes.
