Is Phil Goff trustworthy?

Based on the evidence to date he is not.

I busted him lying about a briefing from the SIS, then I busted him again for breaching coroner’s suppression orders this year. On top of that it was Phil Goff who leaked the MFaT “gone by lunchtime” quote falsely.

So based on all of that it would appear that Phil Goff is actually un-trustworthy.

He confirmed it again today by misleading media and the public with selective leaks of confidential briefing papers. Once is a mistake, twice is deliberate, more than three tomes is a habit for untrustworthiness.

Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman has accused Labour’s defence spokesperson Phil Goff of misleading the public over defence spending cuts. 

Mr Goff has released confidential reports to a Parliamentary select committee raising concerns about the capability of the Defence Force to meet future deployments.

Dr Coleman said Mr Goff is creating a false picture of the state of the Defence Force.

The minister says the information has been leaked selectively and is out of date.

Phil Goff has demonstrated on numerous occaisons that he is untrustworthy. he is unfir to be an MP and unfit to govern.

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.
