Sensitivity training

Wow. Zane Desilva uses an anti-semitic slur on the floor of Parliament - which he wisely withdrew when asked - and the Speaker of the House says it wasn't out of order?

Health Minister Zane DeSilva raised a point of order, pointing out Mr Richards had also said rent prices are falling, and accusing the Shadow Minister of "Jewing down".

Mr DeSilva withdrew that comment at the request of Mr Richards, who said it was offensive to Jews; Speaker Stanley Lowe accepted the withdrawal but said he didn't think the remark was out of order.
