No Prime Minister, you should have sacked Andy Haden
Haden right to quit Cup role, says PM
Former All Black Andy Haden's resignation from his Rugby World Cup (RWC) ambassador role was the right outcome, Prime Minister John Key says.
No Prime Minister, it was weak of you NOT to sack him the first time around when he used 'darkie' in the casually racist way someone who was casually racist would use the word, the fact he was been allowed to stay on as a RWC ambassador and then spew more crude filth than the BP Gulf of Mexico leak about woman only thinking they were raped when the cheque bounced shows a sad lack of leadership on Andy Haden's behalf and Murray McCully's behalf.
How can there be two sides to the story when referring to the Robin Brooke case Andy when one of the sides was in a near drunken coma?
And let's look at what Andy has actually said because as you will note, the bugger does not apologize at all...
In his email to Mr McCully, Haden said he was resigning "to ensure that neither your leveraging initiatives or the game of rugby that I love are compromised by the current media backlash to the comments I have made on television recently.
"I feel that to stay in the role, given the current media beat-up, would mean having to remove myself from making public comments on the game or related issues," he wrote.
"I have always believed in saying what I think, and I will always be true to myself in that regard and it's a sad day for society when people such as I are unable to express what we believe without a media beat-up from those with sectional interests."
...this arrogant dick is still claiming his comments were some how acceptable and its just been one big media beat up??? What is more unbelievable is Key still defending this clown by using Christine Rankin as an example to explain why Andy was given a second chance after the darkie comment???
This has become a joke looking for a punchline.
