Phil Goff said that Labour is focussing on policy, not personality. Is this yet another case of Labour and Phil Goff saying one thing and doing another?
Let’s have a look at the evidence shall we.
Of the last 15 posts on Red Alert:

So just three on policy, the vast majority on personality attacks. It certainly looks like Phil Goff’s promise to debate on policy and not¬†personality¬†is rather¬†hollow¬†right now.
