Labour MP calls Police Minister a paid killer

The Herald reports:

Labour’s police spokeswoman, Ginny Andersen, claims Police Minister Mark Mitchell was “paid to kill people” and has asked him whether he kept a “tally of how many you shot” while providing private military services in Iraq.

Mitchell said Andersen’s comments were “outrageous” and she should apologise. Andersen refused.

Actually his job was to protect people from killers. I blogged previously on some of what Mitchell did, and how many people he kept alive.

The fact Andersen won’t apologise reflects far more on her than Mitchell. If I was Chris Hipkins, I would advise her to apologise.
