He starts :-
Pardon me for swimming against the tide, for presuming to contradict the commentariat’s bellowing consensus, but the whole Darren Hughes-Labour debacle, as it has been claimed to impact on the leadership of Phil Goff, is not quite as clear cut we would be led to believe.
And he concludes :-
Outside the beltway, Mr Goff might have received a better hearing had anyone heard what he had to say: he maintained he put the interests of “justice” and “fairness” before politics.
Insiders would say this is unconscionably naive.
Others, who are neither students of politics nor blooded on the mere whiff of scandal, might say: actually, that’s honourable.
Worth a read. Moderation will be tight.
