Mark Sainsbury had a real sook on Close-Up last night because Anne Tolley fronted, but wouldnâ€™t debate with a so-called â€śexpertâ€ť on drug and alcohol counselling.
What Sainsbury didnâ€™t point out during his tears and whining was that this â€śexpertâ€ť â€“ Roger Brooking â€“ is a grassroots Labour activist. True to form this tool hijacked the interview to push his ideological opposition to private prisons.
No wonder Anne Tolley got demoted from Education. Now in charge of prisons and still can’t add up. infonews.co.nz/news.cfm?id=87â€¦

Good on her for not treating this left-wing low-life as an equal.
Close Up looks like a lame horse waiting for the final shot. No wonder the pressure is getting to Sainsbury.
