Did your company use NZ On Air money to produce a National Party promotional video?
Look, I didn’t keep records of who was working on what when and it doesn’t work like that the only people who have a problem are disgruntled employees but they were volunteers and we were having fun so it doesn’t need to be declared as a campaign expense you should ask the National Party about that I’m not interested in petty politicking. I have a blue car and haircut and I’ve worked very hard so people should be rewarded for working hard and you can’t take that away from them, what’s your problem?
Is Asia Downunder a genuinely public service program or did you use your influence to manipulate the editorial content?
Look, we have been proud to receive $1.2M of funding this year and we have received funding for the past 13 years which shows there obviously is nothing wrong with it I don’t use my job to influence anyone I’m not interested in playing politics all our staff are volunteers doing this sort of thing in their own time and they enjoy the opportunity to practice NZ On Air gets great value for money from it’s $1.2M that would only go to people with their snouts in the trough ripping off the system anyway. I had nothing to do with anything even when I was looking over the editors’ shoulder because I have no say I have no control, no control over anything I’m too busy to run my company and that’s just political because we deserve to be funded it’s good value for money and it’s just fun. John Key is a great leader.
Why did you apologize for your comments about people from South Auckland, were you forced to?
Look, I was just saying what a policeman said to me I can see south Auckland from my house so I know what I’m talking about I’ve been here a lot longer than some of the other candidates so yeah that’s true but I think you have to move forward and not hold on to the past and I feel for those people who are going to lose their houses but only poor people are criminals so if they’ve done nothing wrong they have nothing to fear.
What’s your view on the National Cycleway project?
The cycleway will help funnel criminals away from the good people’s homes and away into the country where nobody lives everyone knows criminals are lazy so they won’t use the cycleway but policemen on bikes will be able to get to the criminals quicker if the cycleway goes straight to jail even better we all win, except the criminals, but that’s good for the environment too. The Supercity will make it easier for everyone to exercise which they should even if they are lazy. Exercise is good for everyone how can anyone argue against that? If you don’t excercise then the gangs have won.
