Must be an election coming

Phil Goff likes to keep his family private. He professes to want to keep them out of the harsh scrutiny of politics.

GOFF HAS vulnerabilities, of course, and in his lounge at the farm he opened up about the time his daughter Sara was caught with ecstasy in Australia.

He has always been fiercely protective of his family’s privacy and was distraught that Sara was targeted in the media just because she was his daughter.

If there was ever a time he contemplated not staying on in politics, he says, that was it.

If you’re really are so “fiercely protective” of your family’s privacy, so much so that you have carded any reporter that dares to write about your family, why would you tell the world all about them?

This shows yet again that Phil Goff can’t maintain any position for longer than a sentence. Fiercley protective  but  hey take some photos and write us all up, including dear old dad.

Can’t wait till next weeks installment when he re-writes history and denies he is the biggest asset seller in New Zealand’s history.

Perhaps he should have quit politics back then. He will be quitting for sure soon after November 26.

    The pathetic piece in this morning’s NZ Herald about Goff is another classic example of the left leaning msm trying to give Goofy and his Socialist cronies some cheap publicity prior to the election. Thank god for blog sites such as yours Whale which publish articles and information that show them up for the losers that they really are.

  • Glad you found the same passage that I blogged about Cam. Phil Goff must have a big wardrobe full of jandals, because he flip-flops all over the show!

    His father should roll him as leader.

  • Richard

    That was a lengthy advertorial.

  • Grant M. McKenna

    Phil Goff is the best Leader of the Opposition ever, and I hope that he keeps his post for many years to come.

    Dont you love of the comments at Red Alert

    have the leader of one party who left school to join the workforce and then – in the days before high fees- put himself through university while the leader of another party lived at home with a parent on the benefit while attending university

    I didnt know Goff left school so young and didnt have parental support ( or the state) for his university years
