Another fail for Phil Goff

Does someone risk secreting drugs on their own person on behalf of another? Clearly if good money is offered, yes they do. But into a dance party?

Because if Phil Goff's daughter has "never taken drugs" that is what she must have been doing. Taking a huge risk to satisfy someone else's desire to take ecstasy. I don't buy it. But Phil does.

At least that is his story for the media. She carries ecstasy in her bra but doesn't use it. Oh, OK, it was the first time she had done it so fortuitously never actually got around to taking them. At 25?

Why not come out and say that prohibition is futile law, and causes more harm than any it seeks to prevent? Including the inevitable political fallout and stress for his family.

And would a poor brown boy managed to have dodge the consequences of this pernicious law as successfully as Mr Goff's daughter? I don't think so.

Instead of going into denial Mr Goff could have learned something really useful from this nasty episode. But he failed.

Prohibition is futile indeed!

it would appear the identity of her companions was more damaging than getting busted with kiddi pills.

Happens all the time at gigs. You'd be amazed at what some people take with them to the New Years festivals..
