Labour's lies exposed

New ACC chairman walks into rowACC chairman John Judge yesterday cast doubt on whether he asked ACC Minister Nick Smith to act on his behalf at a parliamentary committee. Mr Judge was making his first appearance before Parliament’s transport and industrial relations… [NZ Herald Politics]

Labour’s constant lies about privatisation of ACC have been exposed for what they are, absolute, desperate, unmitigated lies.

Instead of proving that Labour is lying and scare-mongering over ACC the media instead is focussing on Nick Smith. This alone is reason to dismiss him from the job of ACC Minister. Maurice Williamson was demoted from a Cabinet position allegedly because of his distraction during the campaign. Nick Smith and Richard Worth have done much worse yet they maintain their positions. I digress, back to the Labour lies.

In questioning before the parliamentary committee;

Mr Judge told the committee that before accepting the role he established that the Government and Dr Smith were committed to maintaining a “24/7 no fault ACC scheme.

“In fact, I would not have taken the job had it been otherwise.”

There you have it, the lie about privatisation is exposed and destroyed in one short sentence. Let’s hear no more the silliness from Davd Parker et al about privatisation.
