David Garrett, former ACT MP, law and order crusader and
convicted criminal self-confessed fraudster, has taken to contributing to the General Discussion threads on Kiwiblog. Today’s entry:
I am interested in the collective opinion on a little contretemps I had in the supermarket over the weekend. While selecting my fruit and veges, I noted an Asian women near me vigourously sniffing pieces of fruit …and then putting them back for others to buy. I told her – perhaps more firmly than I needed to – that while this may be acceptable in her home country, people here did not want to buy fruit she and others had sniffed. It did not go down well, with the daughter – sadly rather predictably- saying I was a racist.
