Now his fondest memory

I blogged previously about Kris Faafoi’s remarkable memory, when on Q+Q he claimed to remember McDonalds coming to Porirua, at the age of one.

I also blogged on his pamphlet which talks about how he had a great start because his family lived in , when the truth is his immediate family lived in Christchurch.

The McDonalds line was dismissed as:

He has since said he “mis-spoke”, and meant to say he had heard it was the first McDonald’s in the country and it was where he had his first McDonald’s burger.

However a Porirua Citylife reader tells me the following quote appeared in the local newspaper on 3 November – three days after the Q+A interview:

Some of his fondest memories include going to the opening of New Zealand’s first McDonalds, which he proudly boasts was in Porirua.

“It was like a family playground for me at that time,” he says.

It’s one think to mis-speak in a live debate. Quite another to repeat it to a newspaper.
