Disgraced former Labour MP and cabinet minister Phillip Field is probably more of a natural National Party member. they are all potentially corrupt! Word is he gave himself that Samoan chiefly title of "Taito". Doesn't warrant it any more the decrepit vagabond. He has been given six years for corruption and deserves every year he serves. He is the first New Zealand member of parliament to be imprisoned for corruption. Well the first to get caught - there could have been more in the late 80's and 90's.
This "helpful" individual did what is culturally common in Samoan society? Don't think so folks! Give our Samoan neighbours and cousins a little more credit than that!
He helped Thai nationals gain help with immigration matters they were not entitled to - in return for tiling work on his "houses" free of charge. Yeah right! A most helpful little rogue.
He brought New Zealand's credibility into disrepute. He was corrupt and deserves imprisonment - was six years enough?
