National loses confidence in the Police

Don Brash has written to the Police outline serious misgivings about their;

  • Failure to understand the Electoral Act
  • Failure to take Crown Law advice
  • Failure to prosecute Labour
  • Failure to deal adequately with former Chief Electoral Officer David Henry's concerns.

"Having carefully considered the material obtained about the investigation, it is my view that questions remain of such seriousness that they challenge National's ability to retain confidence in the police," he said.

Brash also said comments made by police national manager of crime services Detective Inspector Harry Quinn, that the law was unclear and he was concerned action would impact on the integrity of the election, suggested police wanted to avoid a prosecution that would potentially damage Labour.

I think the comment about the integrity of the election is certainly valid. Labour stole the election.
