Corrupt Labour MP fails on appeal

Good job. The man that Michael Cullen said was guilty of nothing more than being helpful to his constituents and the man that Labour only sacked from the party when he hinted he might go independent has had his appeal chucked out.

Disgraced former politician Phillip Field has failed to overturn his conviction on fraud charges or have his six-year jail sentence reduced.

Field was jailed in October last year after being convicted by a jury in the High Court in Auckland of 11 charges of bribery and corruption as a Member of Parliament and 15 charges of perverting the course of justice.

Labour still hasn’t apologoised for his actions as a minister and as an MP that lead to his corruption charges.

All they have ever done is acknowledge the verdict.

At the time of the incredibly rigged Ingram Report Michael Cullen had this to say about the situation;

If that is what he is guilty of, then I am sure he is happy to plead guilty to working hard on behalf of his constituents.

Michael Cullen, of course, went on to obstruct the Privileges Committee to help out Winston Raymond Peters, 65, unemployed of Herne Bay. He certainly knows his corruption.
