Confirmation of Liarbour's desperation comes from Pete "Gollum" Hodgson's latest ruse to defeat National.
If you cannot use fair and reasoned argument, lets try and find a technicality.
Thus, Pete Hodgson accused John Key of making false declarations on where he lived, which if proven, could force the National Party Leader to step down from Parliament.
"Tell the truth!" declared Gollum in his party press release, saying Key's style is to "slip and slide" in what he says.
So what did National do? They told the truth and released a letter from the Clerk of House saying Key met all the requirements over the Electoral Act with his living arrangements.
Now, remember when New Plymouth MP Harry Duyhnhoven breached electoral law by claiming Dutch citizenship, which would have forced him to quit his seat, but Labour changed the law retrospectively so he could keep it?
And though she was later cleared, remember Marion Hobbs having to stand down while inquiries were made into her collection of parliamentary living allowances, along with former Alliance MP Phillida Bunkle- which led to reports recommending changes in how such payments are made?
"Slip and Slide?" That's the Liarbour way.
"Tell the truth?" Liarbour doesn't know what it means.
