Field’s appeal dismissed on all counts

November 26th, 2010 at 11:23 am by David Farrar

The Court of Appeal has dismissed ’s appeal on all grounds. Good.

Does this mean will now finally come out and say they agree Field was corrupt while an MP. All they have been able to say to date is they acknowledged the verdict.

    Labour PI MPs can do what they like. Asian National MPs are bad and should be hounded out of Parliament by a lynch mob before the facts are known.

    Labour admit their MP was a crook?? Never.
    Labour apologise to NZ? Never
    Labour consider what is best for NZ rather than what is best for Labour? Never

    It would look to good to the public if they were to condemn his actions as ACT did with Donna Awatere Huata. They know this but they are scared to condemn the convicted criminal Field as he could reveal some things that could damage Labour.

    Does Field have the option to take his case to the Supreme Court?

    I’ve also just blogged about this, and in going through Hansard found an interesting exchange. In the General Debate on 30/7/2006, Dr Lockwood Smith made allegations of corruption against Phillip Field. One Phil Goff replied thus:

    All I do is invite that member to have the courage to make whatever inference he wants to make, outside of this House, and I will pull the rug out from under his feet so quickly he will not know which country he is in. I invite the member to have the courage to do that, but I know that member will not have the courage because there is no substance.

    Egg; meet face. It’s time for Phil Goff to admit that he was wrong, and that Phillip Field was indeed corrupt, as the Courts have ruled.

    I bet Fields got some juicy dirt on Clark and the rest of them. I bet there is stuff that would shock even the loyalist Socialist supporter to their socks.

    Even if only a fraction of the rumours are true the 1999 to 2008 Prime minister and her cohorts are the worst bunch to have ever attempted the govern.

    I look forward to Pete Hodgson, selective muckracker extraordinaire, commenting on some real corruption for a change.

    I see Goff thinks Key should seen something wrong with the number of trips he signed off for Wong.

    That may be a fair question. However, if it is then it is also a fair question why the Labour Minister of Immigration did not say anything about the number of potential immigrants he helped on Field’s request.

    Guys, you just don’t get it, there are two types of criminal:

    1) Labour Party members, and
    2) Everyone else.

    The first lot are just guilty of trying to help (read: themselves) others, assist with the Auckland Council elections by voting for others who are presumably too stupid to tick the right box etc. Or Trevor Mallard. This lot are victims of “the system”.

    The second lot are pure evil, they mainly consist of anyone who drives at more than 100km/h on the open road and those unlikely to vote Labour.

    Please do get with the programme.
