Has Labour heard of Conflict of Interest?

In most western democracies it is common practice to exempt yourself from votes that you may appear to have a conflict of interest.

Certainly that was the defence mounted by Helen Clark in talking about her dear husband blantant dipping into the Marsden Fund whilst sitting on the same panel that gave him the money.

Well the same may very well apply to the "validating" legislation about to be rammed through the house. Surely every Labour, NZ First and United Future MP stand to "benefit" from passing such legislation. Theoretically and realistically they actually need to declare a conflict of interest in the vote and thus absent themselves…..whoopsy, it is a confidence issue, there goes the government.

We want a new election and we want it now.
