It's not a good look at all…But you can't in the same breath call it serious. It's unpleasant, but on a scale compared with murder or rape or something, it's in a different ballpark.ACT’s President Michael Crozier doesn’t get it.
Mr Crozier is more concerned about appearances than whether what Garrett did was morally reprehensible. This explains his references to “not a good look”, “not serious” and “unpleasant”.
I can understand his concern about the image of the party, especially the accusations of hypocrisy. If he is to avoid these accusations he will need to ensure the party is more truthful about the messages it sends out.
That's where I can help. Here’s my attempt at a few catchy slogans to excite the voters.
Tough on crime, but only when committed by others
One law for almost all
We’re sick and tired of all the excuses criminals use, except our own
The party of freedom – from criminal convictions
We’re stand for other peoples' personal responsibility
Transparency and accountability, except where we are involved
