Can Brownlee Face Facts?
10 May 2002.
Obscure National MP Gerry Brownlee lacks the grace to admit when he is wrong, Alliance whip Grant Gillon says.
"Today Mr Brownlee had a privileges complaint thrown out because it was flawed.
"All Alliance MPs remain Alliance MPs until the House rises and Mr Brownlee knows it.
"The Speaker rejected Mr Brownlee's complaint because it wasn't based on facts.
"Having been shown to be wrong, Mr Brownlee should have the grace to admit it," said Grant Gillon.
