Despite being ordered to pay $28,000 for the Thai slave labour he used on his properties, the corrupt former Labour MP Phillip Field still maintains he is only guilty of helping his constituents.
Forget the bribes, forget his attempts to pervert the course of justice – Field still says he’s only guilty of doing what any other person would do – that’s accept/demand a hefty discount for work carried out by desperate migrants seeking his help.
This certainly brought back memories. Despite the conviction, despite court orders he maintain he is innocent.
Shane Jones should be taking notes.
