Ok so now we know Gerry reads Whaleoil

Everyone knows that I am no fan of the salad-dodging, pie scoffing Gerry Brownlee.

However it has become apparent that he is an avid reader of Whaleoil, using the word “ratbags” (at 3:27) in parliament in answering terrorist enabler Phil Goff.

Phil Goff’s crocodile tears over this issue are best answered by this photo which shows clearly which side he is on. There he is holding Yasser Arafat’s hand in Ramallah in 2003.

Foreign Affairs Minister Phil Goff has been criticised for meeting and holding hands with the Palestinian President Yasser Arafat.

Mr Goff met the besieged Mr Arafat in his compound in Ramallah on the West Bank.

Later, Mr Goff ‘s party was caught up in a rock-throwing incident – and had a close encounter with an Israeli tank.

Act leader Richard Prebble asked what message Mr Goff was trying to send by meeting a corrupt, unelected leader who refused to renounce terrorism.

“After September 11, world opinion has turned against terrorism and yet our Foreign Minister has not only met Yasser Arafat but also held his hand,” Mr Prebble said.

National’s foreign affairs spokesman, Wayne Mapp, also wondered what Mr Goff hoped to achieve with his visit.

“It’s simply not good enough for Mr Goff to ignore appeals from the Israeli Government not to meet with Yasser Arafat, when the peace process is so delicately poised,” Dr Mapp said.

“The Government must now consider what can be done to repair the damage … the time for photo opportunities is over.”

Phil Goff is himself a ratbag and a proven liar.

He is constantly undermining New Zealand’s defence forces and is a serial leaker of documents, from his snitches in Foreign affairs, in order to cause political and diplomatic damage to New Zealand.

The day we can take anything he says on defence seriously will be a long time coming.
