Labour MP forced to apologise to Talleys, that must have hurt

Iain Lees-Galloway is quick to rush out the press releases, but it seems he is less discerning about the information he imparts than he is about facilitating relations with parliament’s stenographers.

This time, he got smacked up and presumably some lawyers letters ensued.

Iain Lees-Galloway has (sort of) apologised.

Labour’s Workplace Relations spokesperson Iain Lees-Galloway has been advised by AFFCO Ltd that AFFCO is not advertising for staff in the Manawatu through MSD as stated in a press statement released earlier today.

“I have been advised by AFFCO that the advertisement referred to was not placed by them. I accept their word on this and apologise for the error. I stand by my wider comments concerning Talley’s poor treatment of its workers,” says Iain Lees-Galloway.

What sort of an apology is that?

I suspect another legal letter will ensue as I am pretty sure Talleys would never have authorised that wording.

Only the Labour party and Iain Lees-Galloway would attack a company, making stuff up about good NZ businesses that employ thousands of NZers and only stock NZ grown products. He should spend more time researching his information than he does casting a glad eye of parliament’s stenographers.

Labour wants to wreck a Kiwi company and hand over their customers to foreign owned companies like McCains. I wonder what they are going to do when they find out that it is only Talleys who don’t use GE food in their products….and they want them destroyed.

I expect there to be more on this.
