David Garrett to admit other questionable acts in Parliament today


MP faces new allegations
ACT MP David Garrett will seek to make a personal statement to Parliament this afternoon following fresh allegations about about past criminal charges., the party has confirmed.

It follows questions to Mr Garrett by One News about whether he had ever pleaded guilty to any other charges in New Zealand.

When told the question referred to Mr Garrett being discharged without conviction on a charge of creating a false identity Mr Garrett responded: "I will comment on that later today".

Mr Garrett, the party's hardline law and order spokesman, has been in the firing line this week over revelations he had an assault conviction in Tonga.


Oh sweet jesus, he is the gift that keeps on giving isn't he? Where are my shrill screamers for hardline justice today? It can't be easy, their favourite blogger is a crim, they favourite hardline politician lies about being a crim - is Garth McVicars crying into his victims rights pillow tonight?

David Garrett’s claim that he isn’t a hypocrite pushing for raw meat law and order policy while hiding his conviction for assault simply doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. While the conviction occurred 8 years ago, ACT have always fought against clean slate legislation that would remove minor convictions from peoples records and the bizarre circumstances of Garrett’s assault ironically gives weight to the kind of discretion in sentencing Judges were allowed before the 3 strikes legislation that Garrett promoted!

Garrett is a hypocrite, a thug and his raw meat lock them up forever crap injects hate into social policy - I’d say that to his face but am concerned he’d assault me.

I can't wait to see what he has to explain to Parliament today at 2pm.

True. These scandals hurt everyone involved in them from Hide, Harawiri and Douglas' taxpayer jaunts, the Greens rorting of their accomodation expenses and now this.

All politicians without exception are basically venal little pigs

This latest revelation about Garett says something about his character - which is not good - regardless of the fact that he was discharged without conviction.

Garett benefitted from societies understanding and forgivenss, for an act which is pretty despicable.

Yet he cannot extend the same to others who have had far fewer opportunities in life than he had, who have gone off the rails.

Yes he is quite a disgusting character.

The Green's rorting their accommodation expenses?

You'd be funny if there weren't a whole lot of your deluded brethren (oops sorry another sore point)

And yet you're friends with Tim Selwyn, who is not only a recidivist offender, but has done time?

Now that he has been outed as a crim I thought you would be all sympathetic to Garrett bomber, being that you find all criminals as hard done by.

Criminals not all created equal in your eyes bomber?

Oh. My. Fucking, Christ. Is this the best the anonymous right wing anonotrolls can come up with? Tim Selwyn has NEVER been convicted of assault, David Garrett has been.

Now that he has been outed as a crim I thought you would be all sympathetic to Garrett bomber, being that you find all criminals as hard done by.
Again, is this the best you've got? I know it's a hard day to be a right wing apologist, but come on, stop embarrassing yourself. Of course there is redemption for people who commit crime THAT ISN'T THE POINT. ACT who have railed against suppression and have railed against clean slate - yet they hid Garrett's previous convictions to allow him to play the tough on crime routine.

Criminals not all created equal in your eyes bomber?
Oh this is just pathetic, even for right wing anonymous trolls. How many criminals hide their past, go onto become politicians and then hypocritically rage about tough on crime and pass a 3 strikes law that ironically limits Judicial discretion which would have been used to deal with Garrett's very own assault conviction.

Garrett is a Hypocrite, Hide is a Hypocrite and listening to Garth McVicars claim David deserves a second chance when he is so quick to deny others a second chance is a fucking Hypocrite as well.

You anonymous right wing Trolls are going to have to a do a hell of a lot more than this half-arsed attempt to smoke screen the issues.

Pathetic FAIL of a comment anonotroll.

Funny! My Word Verification word was "KIDYSPI" !!!


David Garrett, stealing the identity of a dead child to obtain a passport.

How and why would you do that? Its a very sick thing to do.??

Rodney Hide is just as sick, he lives at home with his parents for the last 20 years in the basement...

"Of course it's not acceptable," says Mr Hide, "but things that people do in the past, is in the past."

How about your past is a good reflection of what you do in the NOW.
