Your New Zealand Herald reports on the latest lie of Judith Collins:
Justice Minister Judith Collins’ “cup of tea on the way to the airport” at her friend Stone Shi’s company in Shanghai involved a 30km detour in the opposite direction, it was revealed yesterday…
Yesterday the cup of tea was looking even less casual after Labour MP Grant Robertson asked whether she was aware “that Oravida’s headquarters are 30km in the opposite direction from where her hotel and business meetings were held and not on the way to Pudong airport at all?”
Ms Collins said she had never been to Shanghai before except for the airport transit lounge.
“So I had no idea where I was.”
That’s pretty embarrassing for Collins. Caught, red-handed, again, lying in the Parliament and misleading your boss.
And the I-don’t-even-know-where-I-was defence is pathetic.
