Chris Carter cancels holiday and blames media

Chris Cater - anyone know the last time he was happy? He would make a marvelous Christmas Grinch.

Former Labour Party MP Chris Carter has cancelled his summer holiday in Sri Lanka and is blaming the media for ruining his taxpayer-subsidised trip.

Mr Carter and his partner, Peter Kaiser, were to leave on December 29 flying business class to Colombo, via Singapore, at a cost of NZ$13,902 – 75 per cent of which was to be paid by the taxpayer.

Details of the trip were leaked by TV3, which said Mr Carter and Mr Kaiser were due to holiday with British MP Ben Bradshaw and his partner.

Mr Carter said “We have cancelled it. We’ve lost the deposit. We’ve cancelled. We’re not going. Ok, fair enough? You guys have had yet another victory. So thanks, that’s the end of the discussion.”

Yes I think we got that Chris. What I think you are implying is that you have cancelled your holiday,and somehow that is a victory for the media. Yep I can picture ‘victory’ parties going on all around the TV3 building today. Chris – they are Christmas parties not “we beat Chris Carter” parties. Please try not to let your conspiracy theory ridden brain twist that one.

Now the media has been added to the long list of those who are out to get Chris Carter. He has been victimised because he is; an opposition MP, Gay, likes playing tag in parliament with reporters and is grumpy.

Chris says he has been unfairly targeted and many other MPs were using the travel perk to take holidays.

“But we’ll never know, will we? Only me. You would wonder why my travel’s been leaked and nobody else’s. I wonder why that was.”

We will never know but Chris does. It is the evil Dr. Smith the speaker of the house. “The leak had the date I was leaving, the hotel I was staying [at] in Singapore, the flight numbers – the only people that know that are Parliamentary Travel and the Speaker’s office, I’m quite sure that Parliamentary Travel wouldn’t have leaked it, so that only leaves one suspect,” he said. The leak was ” incredibly pathetic, vindictive and spiteful”. Slap me if I am wrong but these are some of the words that others use to describe you Chris.

Dr Smith has denied leaking the documents and has used the Sergeant Schulz defence of “I know nothing”, saying “I didn’t want to comment because I didn’t want to lend dignity to his accusation, but I didn’t even know he was going anywhere, so there was no way I could possibly have leaked anything.”

Ah but newswarped knows Chris is going somewhere. In fact he has already arrived. It is a sunny little spot called political oblivion.
