Chris Carter must really hate Phil Goff.
Just when attention was on Act and David Garrett, Carter returned to work Wellington, went to parliament, though didn’t grace the House with his presence:
Mr Carter said he was back only to sort out his office, and would not be going to the House. A medical note from his doctor gave him leave until the end of the month, and he would return officially on October 5.
He still considered himself a Labour MP. “My dispute is with Phil Goff and not the Labour Party.”
However, Act’s respite will be temporary. Garrett is going to reveal all today.
When politics gets personal like this the biggest losers will be the parties.
