Tau Henare booted from Parliament

Outspoken National MP Tau Henare has been booted from Parliament after repeatedly holding up a sign in parliament with the number '30' on it.

Labour MPs complained about the sign which features their party's latest poll rating.

The Speaker asked Mr Henare to stop misbehaving and when the list MP asked to table the sign, he got told to leave the debating chamber.

Labour suffered a five per cent loss in today's New Zealand Herald poll.
