No money for Mojo but there is for grandstanding

The Green Party this week decided that grandstanding is their preferred method of engagement. The made a huge fuss over Mojo Mathers despite the fact that they are paid millions in taxpayers cash for support staff in the first place.

They cried poor…complaining about Parliamentary Services funding. But their poverty it seems doesn’t extend to spending more parliamentary services cash on flying escorts to Wellington for more grandstanding:

The Green Party flew Ms Wysocki down to Parliament and she sat in the public gallery yesterday while questions were asked about her.

Ms Logie asked Mr Borrows if he thought it was fair that she was reluctantly considering sex work to cover her costs.

Last minute airfares to Wellington would have cost about $600 or one week of support for Mojo Mathers. It seems the Green party can find money for grandstanding..but not for their own MPs.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
