Mixed reactions trail photo of New Zealand’s speaker feeding baby while presiding over plenary


Photos of the Speaker of New Zealand’s parliament, Trevor Mallard, feeding a lawmaker’s baby on the floor of the chamber has garnered diverse reactions on Twitter.

Mallard held and fed the one-month-old son of lawmaker Tāmati Coffey who just returned from paternity leave while presiding over a debate.

Mallard had shared the photo on his Twitter handle with the caption, “Normally the Speaker’s chair is only used by Presiding Officers but today a VIP took the chair with me.

“Congratulations @tamaticoffey and Tim on the newest member of your family.”

While some Twitteratti were quick to praise the Speaker for being thoughtful a few think it was unprofessional to bring a child to the plenary since it’s not a “daycare centre.”

Don’t ever tell people how much you earn, it is a bad idea, Nigerian man warns



Don't ever tell people how much you earn, it is a bad idea, Nigerian man warns

A Nigerian man on social media has disclosed why it is a bad idea for anyone to tell people how much they earn.

The man identified as Charles Ishidi stated that in Nigeria, colleagues working in the same place of work will ride the same uber home and discuss every other thing but will not mention how much they are paid.

“In Nigeria that you and all your colleagues will ride the same uber home, you will be critical of all the management decisions, how your salary is small and all things in between… in fact ride home is for venting. Not one time will anybody even mention how much they are paid,” he said.

Charles went on to disclose what happened when he told his friend how much he earns.

He said, “guys, see the day I told my very close friend how much I earned, I sorta noticed him sink into a shell. And the conversation turned to how I earn more than a Nigerian airforce fighter pilot, and all the possible mathematics he could have done that night. Bad idea, dead it.”
