Goff doesn’t use Crown Limos, nek minnit

Phil Goff made a huge song and dance earlier in the year about crown limousines.

Labour Party leader Phil Goff says he is saving the taxpayer more than $150,000 a year by no longer using his Crown car.

Mr Goff is entitled to the chauffeur-driven car as the leader of the Opposition and says it is his personal choice not to use the car.

He says when so many low- and middle-income earners are under financial pressure he believes it is better to travel by taxi, which is cheaper.

Nek minnit  – here he is driving off in the crown limousine after dropping by the National party campaign launch and doing a stand up for the news tonight on TV3.

Know one thing, when Phil Goff says one thing he actually does the exact opposite.
