A former Labour minister convicted for corruption, and perverting the course of justice has meted out a bit of justice himself against the Labour party. Taito Phillip Field says that Clark “infested the party with homosexuality“.
Already under pressure from internal ructions, the Labour Party leadership has been given a mauling by disgraced former MP Taito Phillip Field.
Just over a year after his release from prison, Field, who compared himself with South African freedom fighter Nelson Mandela, weighed in on Labour’s recent struggles, saying the party has lost its way and been “contaminated” by liberal policy.
The former Helen Clark government, in which he was a minister, had infested the party with homosexuality, Field said.
“There is a perception that they are controlled by homosexuals. It’s like a smell that won’t go away.”
He said the former government’s focus on issues like prostitution, civil unions and anti-smacking distracted from the important issues and was the “death nail in the coffin of the Labour Party”.
“You are going to have a generation of children grow up who think it is OK to have two mums and two dads. This is a contradiction of the word of God.
Field said Labour has betrayed the Christian working class.
“I don’t know how long it will take for them to recover, if they can. I can’t see them getting back in 2014, or the election after.”
That is pretty strong stuff from Taito Phillip Field:
