I find it amusing that Labour thinks so long as Tamihere apologises, then all is well with the world. I mean, does a single person actually think he doesn’t stand by everything he said? That he doesn’t really despise so many of his colleagues?
I see the Dominion Post is using the Government spin line that Tamihere is on stress leave for a week. He is not stressed – he is still talking on radio and looking totally unremorseful.
