A warning for crap MPs who are so desperate for attention that they tell lies – only to be quickly found out.
Step forward Kris Faafoi (again), who let cops down by missing a graduation, only to be busted by me for being at a barbecue instead.
This time, the stupid boy put out a release claiming there are major police cuts in the Waikato and dozens of job losses.
But, oh dear. There quickly followed a press release from Waikato cops who put the boot into Fa’afoi saying;
“there are no planned cuts to staffing or service levels…”
“Despite what has been said, the review we are currently undertaking is not about reducing staff numbers, but is about ensuring we have the right structure in place that allows our staff to deliver the right services to the right people in our communities at the right time.”
And the killer blow;
Mr van der Velde says there have been no cuts to the District’s budget.
So Fa’afoi is continuing to get offside with the cops – not a great look for an opposition spokesperso
Anne Tolley was quick to stick the stilleto in hard.
“Crime rates have fallen for two years in a row and are now at a thirty year low.
“This is hard for Labour to swallow. They would rather criticise and scaremonger over every change the Police make, rather than applaud them for trying to deliver a better service and to keep our communities safe.
“It shows how out of touch Labour is with the Police and the public.
Kris Faafoi is just hopeless. He has become Labour’s very own Private Pike.
