She’s angry and eloquent and clearly aware of the game that has been played. Talking about the attacks that have been made on her by talkback callers she says:
It’s been really heartbreaking but they feel they have the right to comment. Why? Because Ms Bennett raised my details with the press and she knew that that was going to happen.
On the issue of being bullied after speaking out she says:
I think the whole point of this was to intimidate us out of our democratic right to protest the government’s decision.
Less than twenty four hours later and she’s telling TV3 that she has apologised to Bennett after a phone call with her (what she’s apologising for we don’t know, forcing the minister to break the law to smear her perhaps?).
I’m sorry but this doesn’t add up. I’d like to know what was said on that phone call today because this kind of turn-around just doesn’t happen without some kind of fear or favour involved. It just smells a bit… fishy.
