A Gentle Reminder

Just a reminder to those who, in feeling victorious about the Owen Glen letter, are saying “He has no reason to lie!” Aside from the fact that this shows a decided lack of imagination it also sets a dangerous precedent.

It means that we might be required to entertain the ramblings of Edgar Mitchell or Walter Haut.

And I’m not sure that you really want to bite that bullet1.

Notes

  1. I should point out that I don’t think Winston Peters is being evenly vaguely honest in this matter but it is still possible that Owen Glen is not being all that honest either

  1. Your counsel of caution is well made.

    Having no reason to lie is not to say one will not lie.

    Some people lie just to keep in practice.

    Yet even though experience shows that Winston is one of those people, it’s possible he really is as ignorant of his own financial affairs as he looks.

  2. Well, if Winston isn’t lying then I suspect the boozing and the like are the blame for his… lapses.

    Still, given comments and the like that Owen Glen has made over the years I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s also out to have a little fun at other people’s expenses. If I were a wealthy Labour supporter choosing to live the high life in Monaco (and maybe one day I will be) I’d probably also be the kind of person to poke at ants’ nests to see what happens.

    I thought you already were!

    My illusions are shattered. :-/
