David Garrett [updated]
What’s left to be said about this entity?
Say it for me in the comments.
UPDATE: Quips from around the traps (because Garrett doesn’t deserve whole paragraphs:
bustedblonde: "Better hope that David Garrett never read anything by the Marquis de Sade."
hardsell: Ironic for David Garrett is that I believe he may have been convicted unjustly in Tonga, yet under his 3 strikes policy it wouldn't matter.
economicsnz: On David Garrett. In their youth quite a lot of criminals want to be police. I guess some of them grow up to be MPs instead.
novamacaria: David Garrett - if a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged is a liberal a conservative who's been caught.
brettroberts: Can't say I blame David Garrett for creating a false identity. His real one is hardly something to be proud of.
agentK: So the National government in NZ really thinks it should work with ACT's David Garrett: passport fraud, sterilisation incentive, assault...
NZbomber: The first irony of David Garrett's criminal past is that ACT have always opposed clean slate legislation.
badtom: This just in: David Garrett expresses sincere remorse for his attempt to assassinate De Gaulle.
MikeE_NZ is pretty happy right now that David Garrett didn't read The Silence of the Lambs.
jsrnz: Anytime anyone refers to David Garrett, they need add the phrase " .. if that IS his real name."
richardboock: David Garrett advocated offering "bad parents" a $5000 incentive to be sterilised. Should we have a whip around for him?
richardboock: "Alter the Bill of Rights act. we’ve got too hung up on people’s rights..." - Act MP David Garrett.
berenddeboer: Clearly a lot of NZers right now support David Garrett's three strikes and you're out. Or are convictions in the past not relevant?
billbennettnz: In another era David Garrett's friends would have handed him a revolver and hoped he did the right thing.
jarret_filmer: Just saw Roger Douglas and Rodney Hide with black eyes. Garrett must have been reading Fight Club.
patrickgowernz: Rodney Hide's press secretary Allan Swann has "left" - he didn't last long... He was only there 5 minutes. I'm told "creative differences."
westendjenna: Rodney Hide … He's all for law & order & zero tolerance, except when he isn't.
David Slack: Hide closes down ACT party, apologises for "harmless prank". "I was simply curious to see whether such a thing could be done."
publicaddress: It seems worth noting that Tim Selwyn went to jail for using the name of a dead baby to obtain a false passport.
radioovermoscow: ACT's perk-buster loves perks; their Law and Order man has an assault conviction... Let me guess: Roger Douglas is actually a commie?
ImperatorFish: Gerry, can something be done to help David Garrett? He's been running magnificent interference for the gov't all day.
