In a confession that has shocked the twittersphere, and is sure to cause ripples of outrage across middle New Zealand, TV3 Senior Political Reporter Patrick Gower has confessed his hatred for eggs, and as an extension, the entire primary industry that is the backbone of this nation.
His colleagues, friends and family would not comment, giving rise to the certainty of their condemnation of Gower's actions and their lack of support to his anti-nationalism sentiment.
Seymour McTurken from the New Zealand Egg Federation was both saddened and disappointed on hearing about Gower's outburst. "I am both sad and disappointed. Gower has undermined the economic fabric of this country and insulted New Zealanders everywhere. Who doesn't like an Eggs Benedict on a Saturday morning? Traitors to this country, that's who.'
Gower could not be reached for comment which suggests that he is both remorseful and unrepentant for his actions.
