Field claims clear conscience but expresses remorse

October 3rd, 2009 at 9:54 am by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Disgraced former MP Taito Phillip Field broke his silence last night, telling supporters his conscience was clear but he was regretful and remorseful about the situation he was in.

So when will express remorse for backing him, even after the Ingram Report detailed the multiple abuses?

    “he was regretful and remorseful about the situation he was in.”

    That should cut his sentence by at least 60%.

    Contrast with Bill English. Who as far as I’m aware, has not breached any rule but repaid monies and apologized.

    Pretty small stuff though wasn’t it, compared to the three million misappropriated by Pita Sharples for his cronies at Maori TV???

    Field is another example of a crook feigning remorse after being caught red-handed.
    Shame on him and his Labour companions who abetted his corrupt practices over the years.

    Could someone also remind me again how much Jimbos little pseudo party has creamed off the taxpayers during its whole sordid little history?

    I assume he is only regretful and remorseful that he got caught and not for what he did and this sudden concern for his situation is the real possibility that he can study our penal system from another perspective.

    the only remorse that prick feels is about getting caught.

    Listening to him on the radio, he’s still claiming he did nothing wrong, and is guilty only of untidy paperwork.

    So next time, he will ensure he has a full second set of books detailing the fraudulent payments he claims to have made to the people he exploits.

    Pah!

    The man’s a sociopath. Lock him away.

    But of course, the liberal guilt will soon be out, and watch him get a minimal sentence appropriate to his social status. Remember folks, when brown people exploit their power to enslave and rip off other brown people, its just the natural order of things, nothing to see here, move along.

    It would be a nice irony if he used Helen Clark’s excuse that he was “just being helpful to his constituents”. He is Tammany Hall politics to his fingertips. He takes vulnerable people needing some assistance, gets something out of them and then gives them that favour from the State. They stay state “dependent” forever, the Labour Party gets the vote forever.

    This is all neatly timed to coincide with his sentancing on Tuesday. Hopefully the judge won’t be fooled and will come down on him like a tonne of bricks. As a society we cannot tolerate political corruption and the judge needs to send a strong message to that effect.

    here is a chance for the Nats to really get stuck into Labour and the corruption that followed them over the past 3-4 years but here’s the thing .. I don’t think they will because they don’t really do gutter attacks like the reds are now famous for.
