Kris Fa'afoi – Memories of Woodstock and McDonalds

Kris Fa’afoi has a truth problem. He can’t tell the truth.

Some of his fondest memories include going to the opening of New Zealand’s first McDonalds, which he proudly boasts was in Porirua.

“It was like a family playground for me at that time,” he says.

This is after his appearance on Q+A and after his comment was shown to be demonstrably false. This isn’t mis-speaking, this is lying.

Remember readers that Kris Fa’afoi wasn’t even a kid in Porirua, he is from Christchurch, so the he may be telling the truth when he says that McDonalds was like a family playground, he just meant in Christchurch. The statement also has alarming similarities to a recent case in Auckland, where McDonalds was treated as a family playground.

While we are the issue of truthful-ness, remember this headline by Vernon Small at the Dompost?

National’s candidate doesn’t live in Mana

Well neither does Labour’s. As of the last printed electoral roll Kris Fa’afoi is listed as living in Rongotai electorate, in Lonsdale Crescent. The printed roll was last issued as at 20 august. And as at 20 October he is not still not on the Mana electoral roll.

One wonders when Vernon Small will run a similar headline about Labour’s candidate, or are all those latte’s supped at Copperfields with Kris now paying off.

Meanwhile another historic photo of Kris Fa’afoi has just surfaced.
