“I saw the army out in the street and I thought court martial, firing squads you just can’t believe how low a small minority of people can get,”
"Interesting that Phil Goff on radio said that army should shoot looters. Wonder how his caucus feel about his law and order policy?"
I wonder perhaps if he will ask Phil Goff he similarly regrets his comments made on BFM on 28 February where he said:
I saw the army out in the street. I thought, okay, court martial, firing squad. You just can’t believe how low a small minority of people can get. You know, to exploit people’s misery in this way is just beyond forgiveness.
As you can see that is a whole magnitude worse than anything Judith Collins suggested, which was a long prison sentence. Phil Goff meanwhile was considering firing squads.
The media really needs to ask Phil Goff what he meant by thinking of firing squads. I mean seriously they do. “Beyond forgiveness” and “court martial, firing squads” for looters!
Will Grant Robertson ask Phil to retract?
"Talking of due process though, Whale Oil has a quote from a senior politician calling for looters to get court-martialed and a firing sqaud. Go check it out – you may be surprised with who the politician is."
"It is clear that he isn’t joking. And even if he was he shouldn’t have been."
