Andrei A poisoned chalice

Phil Goff has made a pigs breakfast of the Hughes affair, no question about it.

This has lead to speculation he may be rolled in some quarters.

What would I know about that but who in their right mind would take up the reins of the Labour Party at this juncture?

The party is in disarray and heading for a drubbing come November, it would take a miracle and a miracle worker to overturn that.

If someone does decide to challenge him and take that on good luck to them but it seems like a loosing proposition to me.

It's a disaster, but I wonder how much control of it Goff really had. It makes me wonder if Hughes' behaviour was considered somewhat normal for an unmarried male Labour MP.

Disgusting behaviour passed on by aunty helen and her freakshow husband peter davis. What sick scum these creeps are!

Scott said...

I would agree with that Lucia. Given that labour has embraced homosexuality as a sexual preference just as good as heterosexuality then Hughes making sexual advances at an 18 your old male is to be expected. Presumably the issue is the age of the young man? Or some kind of sexual assault took place?

Given our moral malaise one wonders whether this will be quietly forgiven and Hughes will take his place once again. I'm not sure how our civilisation can continue to function given this acceptance of debauchery.

Bloody hell, you lot know how to make me laugh!

What behaviour are you on about Lucia? Speculation, at the moment.

Scott, it cannot have anything do with age, 18 is past the age of consent.

There could be an allegation of some form of sexual assault, but at this stage, we don't know.

But lack of knowledge has never stopped Peter Burns' motor mouth, has it?

Rumour and inuendo is your stock in trade, not a peep about stones and sinless lives.

Gee, commenting on what Goff is doing and a fraction of the speculation rife in the papers and on talk back radio. How scandalous!

I don't see how Goff could have handled this any better really. Hughes is innocent of illegal actions until proven guilty in a court of law. How would you have done it differently?

Lucia Maria said...

Muerk,

Of course he is innocent until proven guilty, but that doesn't mean that you pretend nothing has happened.

A young man runs from the house in early hours of the morning and flags down a passing police car - how serious does it have to get? What if there were a dead body involved, rather than a live one, would we expect Goff to stand Hughes down a little earlier then, perhaps?

It was only a matter of time before Darren got himself into trouble around young drunk men. This is classic behaviour. They are all the products of the way Jonathan Hunt ran Princes street. All their problems have stemmed from there.
