    Andrew Kirton seems to think that putting a false qualification on your CV is alright if you are ‘working towards it’ – he must really have something on the top brass in Labour as the guy is a total liability and should have been assed after the intern lies, and definitely after his attempts to over up sexual assault claims.

      Christ Kirton’s an idiot. That makes things even worse than just claiming it was a cock up & blaming some unnamed secretary or PR underling.

    I see a man, who has lived in NZ since 1960s, has had his ‘overstayer notice’ overturned & was issued a permanent resident visa, by the Minister ! good job

    Even Mr Seymour (ACT) said that Immigration, should just do their jobs, not bother a resident, who has no convictions etc.
