Where's the gift duty Labour?

Bernard Darnton raises a very good point when he looks at Labour's stolen funds pay back.

[quote]Of course, having legalised the misspending, there was no legal debt. The Parliamentary Service under Margaret Wilson’s guidance never asked for the money back. As such, the $824,524 given to the Parliamentary Service is a gift.

Gift duty rates

At the rates detailed in the Inland Revenue’s Gift Duty Guide (IR194, PDF), my calculations have the Labour party owing $193,850 in gift duty. Here’s hoping that Inland Revenue is as vicious towards the Labour party as it is towards more productive members of society.[/quote]

Yeah plus add that to the penalties fro breaking the Election Spending ceiling and Labour are still not out of the woods yet.
