Spare a thought for Chester Borrows, the National MP for Whanganui, who backed into a car at Ratana yesterday in front of a gaggle of chortling political journos.
Driving a people-mover with five Tory MP colleagues aboard, Borrows pranged into Annette King's car, or rather her hubby's. A Mercedes-Benz.
Maybe he couldn't see past his chattering passengers, or past the straw trilby he insisted on sporting, but Borrows must have heard the hoots of laughter emanating from the sidelines.
Luckily there was no damage - well, to the car.

Resident Labour stirrer Trevor Mallard was overheard gossiping that Borrows and King "are cousins and this must be a family feud".
