It’s well known that David Garrett is only in Parliament as ACT’s payoff for their support from the Sensible Sentencing Trust. I’m guessing right about now they must be having some serious buyer’s remorse.
The buffoon is in the Herald again today after the Attorney General found his three strikes bill to be at odds with the Bill of Rights’ protections against cruel, degrading or disproportionately severe punishment.
Mr Garrett had not read the report, but told of its findings yesterday said: “So what?”
“Alter the Bill of Rights Act. We’ve got too hung up on people’s rights.”
He then went on to dismiss the report as being written by “some oik from Crown Law” and stated that he didn’t give a damn about prisoners having rights. So much for the ‘liberal party’, eh?
