They are accusing Lotu-Iiga of double-dipping - something not entirely unknown in Labour circles. But what is worse is Su'a William Sio's outright lie when he says:
Associate Pacific Island Spokesperson Su'a William Sio, who is a former Manukau City Councillor, said when he entered Parliament midway through 2008 he resigned from the council immediately because it was impossible to do justice to both jobs.
Here's the facts. Sio became a member of Parliament on 29 March 2008, upon Dianne Yate's "transition" to a few cushy directorships. He resigned from the Manukau City Council on 9 May 2008.
Now the Webster's Online Dictionary defines "immediately" thus:
Without delay; with no time intervening; "he answered immediately"; "found an answer straightaway"; "an official accused of dishonesty should be suspended forthwith"; "Come here now!".
A six-week delay is "without delay, with no time intervening "? Or is Su'a William Sio another of those Labour people who doesn't let the facts get in the way of a good story?
