Fails the sniff test

With the Sir controversy, I guess no one knows for sure what was said, except those there. But the allegation is he said:

“I go ‘Yeah, I’m actually born here’. That’s when he said ‘Well this is a white man’s island and you should acknowledge that’,” she said.

To me this fails the sniff test. It is not just something that anyone would say – demanding a Maori women should acknowledge that Waiheke is a white man’s island.

Sure this might be what she genuinely thinks he said, but the wording seems preposterous. While Sir Peter’s version of events does not.

Such a pity that today people feel the way to do deal with a conversation that upset them is to rush to Facebook and demonise the other person.
