The Herald has some political quotes of the year.
The best ones IMHO are;
"An orchestrated litany of Thais,"
National MP Maurice Williamson’s observation on embattled Labour MP Taito Phillip Field’s cover story for hiring Thais to work on his home in Samoa.
"We won’t pay the money back."
Labour Minister Pete Hodgson, gets a bit ahead of the Government’s script by ruling out any repayment of Parliamentary Services funding for election campaign material.
"When you look at it from the outside, it’s either incompetence or political bias."
Don Brash attacks the police for not prosecuting Labour over breaches of election spending laws.
Of course they have forgotten the memorable quote from the Prime Minister in parliament. "Labour played by the rules"
