'It has been a hell of a ride' - Murray McCully's valedictory

From The House, 5:30 pm on 9 August 2017

Full of humour, reflections, gratitude, and advice valedictory statements are a chance for MPs to go out on a high.

Every retiring or resigning MP is offered the chance to give a farewell adress to the House and this year 15 MPs have taken that opportunity.

In his speech National's Murray McCully shared stories of sneaking away for rugby games, the change to MMP, and serving as Minister of Foreign Affairs for nearly 10 years.
