Phil Goff and Labour have a strap line they repeat numerous times a minute about asset sales. They say that once they are sold that “you can’t buy them back” or that they are “gone forever”.
Yet what did he tell listeners on Radio Live yesterday? That Labour had bought back two assets.
Just two minutes later he was back to his lines about not being able to buy them back and them being gone forever.
With Phil Goff there is always a hook, a catch or an except. He never tells the whole truth, he always leave the inconvenient truth out.
