Garth McVicar is head of the Sensible Sentencing Trust. He stands for tougher sentencing and zero tolerance for criminals.
David Garrett has a conviction for assault, lied to a Court in order to escape a conviction for stealing the identity of a dead baby in order to fraudulently obtain a fake document and, according to the Herald today, could now face further criminal charges for perjury.
So naturally McVicar is backing Garrett to head up a new hard-line law and order party:
Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Garth McVicar said dozens of the trust’s supporters had called in support of Mr Garrett, and they had expressed interest in a Garrett-led independent party with a law and order focus.
He said he had discussed this with Mr Garrett before last week’s events.
“He was happy where he was at with the Act Party, but obviously things have [now] changed significantly.”
You couldn’t write this stuff.
Garth McVicar is the man responsible for putting this disgusting criminal in Parliament in the first place in a sordid back room deal between the Sensible Sentencing Trust and ACT.
Like Hide, he sheltered Garrett and hid his secrets from the public. He was even a character witness who helped keep Garrett out of jail for his disgusting crimes.
Now he wants Garrett to lead his new proxy party. Like Hide, McVicar’s stained reputation is now completely shot.
