Phil Goff – For F*cks Sake

TV3’s Pedro Gower has run a clip of Phil Goff’s offensive behaviour at Select Committee:

However, Pedro goes on to say that he can’t recall the F word being used at Select Committee before and it’s ‘uncharted’ territory. 

I can’t recall it being used previously at select committees either, but it has been used on the floor of the House.

After this little outburst – Steve Maharey went on to retire from politics. Tick tock Phil Goff?

For the record: NZFirst’s Ron Mark also famously flipped the bird in Parliament too… and the Labour Speaker punished TV3 for showing it!

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.
