Spot the difference

After catch up with the Clayton Cosgrove donations scandal that unfolded over the weekend, I checked the my archives to see what Labour Leader David Shearer had said about real or perceived conflicts of interest in the Nick Smith case.

Smith wrote a reference for an “old friend” and resigned.

Cosgrove wrote a LAW that would benefit an old friend and significant donor, then pushed strongly to get it through.  Cosgrove is on Shearer’s front bench and defending his actions.

Shearer’s been a strident critic of supposed conflicts of interest.  It’s time for him to demonstrate some consistent leadership for a change.
