Michael Basset gives a little history lesson

Micahel Bassett has been busy. He also has a little history lesson for us all on Stuff.

Powerful stuff, he concludes that in the history of New Zealand there has never been a government where so much impropriety has dogged so many people. 

[quote]What I find most disturbing about the party funding and Field scandals is that Labour MPs and trade unionists have taken almost a year to arrive at the conclusion that anything is wrong. They still don't concede that tickling the taxpayers' till for election purposes is indefensible. It was clear last September that Field had broken rules and benefited personally. However, getting ministers to acknowledge wrongdoing has been like drawing elephants' teeth. And where was our newly sanctimonious union leader, Andrew Little, a year ago?[/quote]
