An entourage? Ctd

Phil Goff said that he would no longer use Crown limousines, except when he said that he was just telling fibs. Since that time he has been caught out repeatedly.

Labour leader Phil Goff will cut back his use of chauffeur-driven Crown cars in favour of much cheaper taxis after he ran up a $70,000 bill in three months.

But he is questioning the cost of the ministerial BMW limousines.

The latest episode is in Nelson.

Phil Goff visited Nelson, a Crown?BMW had to be driven up from Christchurch just so he could be?picked?up?and returned to?Nelson Airport.?Obviously, there were other available options, but?the BMW nevertheless had to make?the?return trip from?Christchurch.
The Nelson Mail (8.11.11, page 2) mentioned it with photo under the heading?”Goff’s?Beatles?Moment.” ?It?commented:
“Frankly, we can?t believe the waste. What is the point of driving an?empty Government vehicle from Christchurch? ?Why not use a car, taxi or even limousine?based in Nelson?”
Phil Goff accused John Key of lying when he said one thing and then did another. Of course Phil Goff was ignoring the circumstances. In this case however Phil Goff is on record as saying that the Crown cars are expensive and that he won;t use them, yet he does and in silly places at ridiculous expense.
