Labour is the Nasty party, Ctd

More Nasty Party Smears from Nasty MPs.

This week, Labour’s Moana Mackey made some very serious allegations under the cover of Parliamentary Privilege.

This has totally flown under the radar of mainstream media.

During her address in reply speech on Tuesday this week, Mackey claimed the National Party “refuses to disclose who donates to their election campaigns”.

Here’s the relevant clip:

This is a serious allegation.

Parties are required by law to disclose their donations, and if National’s breaking the rules it should be pinged.

But on the other side of the coin, saying something in Parliament that is demonstrably untrue is a potential breach of Parliamentary Privilege.

If Mackey has proof that National is breaking the law then she should stump up with that proof.  If she doesn’t, she should apologise for another Labour smear job.

One other thing, if Labour’s keen to disclose who donated to their campaign, I have their database and I’m here to help.
