Maurice Williamson to appear on Ellen

MauriceWilliamsonMaurice Williamson has been allowed to appear on US chatshow Ellen.

The Pakuranga MP, whose speech on the Marriage Equality Bill went viral last week, was invited by Ellen DeGeneres to appear on her show but turned it down originally due to the fact it was a paid trip.

John Key gave Williamson the all-clear for the trip on Breakfast this morning, in the condition that he donates his appearance fee to charity, as politicians aren’t permitted to take up the offer of a paid trip.
