Goff lies, Ctd

Phil Goff has accused John Key of telling lies, he has refused to retract. In Phil Goff’s world if you say one thing in the past and then change your mind or do something different no matter the circumstances then you are telling lies.

Well since Phil Goff decided to ignore his own press about focussing on policy and not personality let’s continue the examination of Phil Goff’s lies using his own definition.

Phil Goff on Capital Gains Tax:

In September 2009 Phil Goff said that Capital Gains Tax was not an immediate priority. It didn’t appeal to Labour.

Now just two years later Capital Gains Tax is heroically going to fund their more than $17 billion of extra spending.

Using Phil Goff’s definition of lying, of saying one thing in the past and doing another thing in the future, despite changes in the economy, or global situation, then clearly Phil Goff is a liar.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
