Andrew Little questioned the actions of this government, as he should, and has fronted up and taken (unlike certain PMs I could name) personal responsibility for offense taken by other parties, as he should. He has endured a costly and draining legal process with a result widely hailed as a victory for democracy. But apparently that isn’t enough, so here we go again:
Andrew Little – Statement on Earl Hagaman
Thursday, 13 April 2017, 8:07 am
Press Release: New Zealand Labour Party
“I have seen Lani Hagaman’s statement seeking a retrial.
“I have taken every opportunity to resolve this matter and I have faced up to my responsibilities.
“My priority now are the thousands of New Zealanders who can’t buy their own home, can’t get the health care they need and who are struggling to get ahead.
“Fixing these problems means changing the Government and that is my focus.
“As this matter could be subject to further court proceedings, I will not be commenting further.”
