Political Quotes

The Herald has some political quotes of the year.

The best ones IMHO are;
"An orchestrated litany of Thais,"
 National MP Maurice Williamson’s observation on embattled Labour MP Taito Phillip Field’s cover story for hiring Thais to work on his home in Samoa.

 "We won’t pay the money back." 
Labour Minister Pete Hodgson, gets a bit ahead of the Government’s script by ruling out any repayment of Parliamentary Services funding for election campaign material.

"When you look at it from the outside, it’s either incompetence or political bias."
Don Brash attacks the police for not prosecuting Labour over breaches of election spending laws.

Of course they have forgotten the memorable quote from the Prime Minister in parliament. "Labour played by the rules"

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
