What I find most amusing is the claims to have been a champion bob-sleigher, swimmer and rugby player. How many people really do become champions in three very different sports like that?
I can’t find the full report online anywhere, but blame seems to lie with both the NZ Defence Force and Momentum. Amazingly his actual CV turned out to be correct – he just lied about everything else verbally. The failing was not talking to all his referees it seems.Tags: Stephen Wilce
