The inconsistency of Phil Goff

Week in week out Phil Goff shows he can’t keep to his lines, and changes his positions on almost everything the instant he changes topic. This weeks interview with Wammo is a shocker and a mass of contradictions:

Last week he told Wammo:

Wammo: If the worst happens we’ll be seeing you down on the beach with a spade and a bucket?
Phil Goff: Hahaha well I’m not sure about that.

As they say, Nek Minnit:

There he was down at the beach in his shiny suit and shiny shoes playing with his bucket and spade.

And then at the end of this week’s interview with Wammo, Phil Goff says he did not know his party had published its ICT policy! He didn’t even know I had published it before they had published it!
Back in 2005 Labour bagged Don Brash for likewise being out of touch with policy releases:

Don Brash tells Guyon Espiner he’s not familiar with the detail of the policy and was unaware it had been released

The man is a joke.

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.
