Comment by Craig Foss MP on Rodney Hide

Note: this post originally appeared on ‘Douglas to Dancing’, a blog I maintained from 2007-9 on the ACT New Zealand political party. The blog was an extension of the thesis I wrote about the Act Party in 2007, From Douglas to Dancing: explaining the lack of success of ACT New Zealand and evaluating its future prospects (PDF).

This comment from Craig Foss (first-term National MP) was posted at his blog. It’s facetious but he makes his point:

Identity Fraud at Parliament

The Inland Revenue Department was reviewed by Parliaments Finance and Expenditure Committee this morning.

During the review, a guy came in and sat down in Rodney Hide’s, from the Association of Consumers and Taxpayers Party, (ACT), designated seat. This person then took Mr Hides call to speak and proceeded to wax lyrical about what a great job IRD were doing!

He was also very generous, almost loving in his praise of the Labour party!

Who was this man?

Or one might equally ask – who is Craig Foss?!
