What could Delahunty’s excuse be for Charter School Lie?

catherine-delahunty-1200

When trying to attack NZ Charter Schools on RadioLive on Monday Catherine Delahunty was trying to sound at least a tiny bit credible. So when Duncan Garner asked her if she had even bothered to visit one – she lied and said she had.

On Tuesday afternoon Garner exposed it.

Here are 6 things that may be offered as excuses in a situation like that.

– as the Greens spokesperson for education I am not expected to tell the truth.   

– as the Greens spokesperson for education I consider all morals to be relative – it was as truth to me.

– as the Greens spokesperson for education how am I expected to know the difference between visiting a Private School years ago and visiting a Charter School in 2014.

– as the Greens spokesperson for education how am I expected to know the difference between Private School a Charter School at all.

– as the Greens spokesperson for education I can confirm that the excess CO2 in the atmosphere caused by my travel has prevented clear thinking.

– as the Greens spokesperson for education how am supposed to know the difference between 2014 and years ago.

Others?

Will an apology be forthcoming?

She is a Green, of course she won’t apologise…Russel Norman will instead keep focussing on who the Prime Minsiter txts.

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.
