Just to clarify, however, my initial post wasn’t actually about Louisa or the Marriage Equality Bill at all, but about the strategy Labour has pursued so far this year.
That is right, Nash was not responsible for that strategy. So who was? How much strategic input has say Grant Robertson or Jordan Carter had? Can they all just blame Trevor now Nash has said “not me”?
One thing is for sure, Nash is confused about his mate David Parker.
I know that David Parker has been doing some serious thinking about this and he is a man of huge integrity and intelligence; and a man of courage. I expect to see some pretty revolutionary ideas to come from his office.
Right so this is the same David Parker who allegedly breached the Companies Act for filing false declarations to the Companies Office when of all people, a trained lawyer and Attorney General?
Mr Parker and Helen Clark described Mr Parker’s declarations as a “mistake” and Mr Parker said he believed many other people filed such declarations to “cut corners”.
By ticking the box, he saved himself $400 or $500 a year in audit fees.
“In respect of my own life I’ve done a lot more in my life than a lot of people have and overall I am proud of my achievements, but I’m certainly ashamed of this particular mistake,” he said last night. With the benefit of hindsight I was a bit glib in the way I ticked the form and sent it in.”
Parker is the last man who can comment about declarations, returns and forms and it has not held him back from being the next big thing in Labour years on.
The hypocrisy of the Labour Party know no bounds.
