With an almost Winston-esqe turn of phrase Owen Glenn has labelled Labour Party president Mike Williams an “unmitigated falsifier of veracity”.
Yet Glen himself has claimed that he was offered a cabinet post (cough), that he donated money to Labour because of the Exclusive Brethren’s involvement in National’s campaign (timing doesn’t work), that Labour Party President Mike Williams bribed voters in South Auckland with KFC (I’ve heard it was actually BK), asked him for a job as an administrator (pardon?) and turned up on his boat uninvited (there’s contrary email evidence).
Confused? Liar? To me it sounds like Glenn enjoys a good yarn – complete with the requisite embellishments and flourishes that have been getting Kiwi blokes and their mates in the crap for years. Maybe once the dust has settled Williams and Glenn will again be able to share a beer.
In the meantime I’d be far more interested to know why an ex-winebox lawyer would be working for Glenn pro bono.
