A massive stoush has broken out over who said what and even who didn’t hear what over the homophobic name calling of Trevor Mallard.
David Farrar has been called a liar as has the Wellington Central Act candidate Stephen Whittington, by Jordan Carter and by Grant Robertson. Green MP Kevin Hague has backed up Farrar and Whittington.
In the debate Charles Chauvel has stated that he has never heard the “tinkerbell” insult and that if he had he would have said something. Well the man must have clothe ears.
In the video of the incident where Trevor Mallard clearly, both over the sound system and recorded in Hansard calls Chris Finlayson “Tinkerbell Charles Chauvel can be seen sitting there not more than 3 seats away from Trevor Mallard.
Charles Chauvel cannot claim not to have heard the insult. The video evidence suggest otherwise. It is looking more and more like it is Labour MPs and apologists who are the ones doing the lying. Here is another shot just after Mallard has been pulled up for his insult.
You really have to wonder why these MPs tell bald faced lies when the video evidence is available to all to prove their lies.
