LEAKED: Labour’s plans to use taxpayer money to promote policy

The Labour party continues to leak and this morning I have received documents outlining just exactly how the Labour party plans to echo their $800,000 rort with the pledge card and fund the promotion of their NZ Power policy from taxpayers pockets.

The documents are very clear. They state:

The Leader’s [Office] will provide a targeted mail drop to support upcoming public meetings on NZ Power. We’ll provide the target list, the letter, the collateral, printing and deliver the target mail to electorate offices.

In other words the costs associated with the promotion of a Labour party policy is to be billed to parliamentary services. They go further:

Note: Larger print runs are much more cost effective. So we’ll be looking to combine the print run of as many meetings as possible. 

Nice that they are trying to get as much as possible for the taxpayers dollar. 

On top of that they are looking to utilise the resources of MPs and their offices.

MPs will organise and facilitate the public meetings. This includes building the crowd. The Leader’s Office will be able to assist with collateral and a targeted mail drop. For larger meetings we’ll get the Leader involved.

Such nice words…”assist with collateral”…that means preparation, printing and delivery all paid for with public money. Plus they are planning on using taxpayer funded electorate offices as distribution points.

Labour are broke, we know that from other leaks. Like the last time they ran out of money Labour are shamelessly planning on raiding the taxpayer’s pockets to fund their election campaigns and policy launches.

Full documents below.
