Is Clare Curran trying to save her bacon by sucking up for telco donations?


The word from my Labour sources is that they want rid of Clare Curran.

Everyone in Dunedin has known this for some time and David Cunliffe has made significant promises to Lesley Soper who worked hard for his election as leader.

It seems though that she is trying to curry favour by becoming Labour’s Minister of Donations.

It is astonishing how Labour will do anything to deflect the story away from the truth around Chorus and essentially run the corporate lines on behalf of their telco mates, and Matthew Hooton’s Corporate Wrecking Crew.   

While Labour likes to smear National by saying they pander to the top end of town, Labour via Clare Curran is currying favour with multinational telcos like Vodafone and other telcos awash with cash but greedy for more including Or-Con and their fat German friend.

The truth is that their fat cat telco mates at Telecom, Vodafone and Or-Con stand to pocket over $100 million between them if the Commerce Commission ruling stands.

Why isn’t Labour standing up for the hard working decent New Zealanders they claim to represent and demanding that these telcos will pass on every cent of the savings?

It’s because Curran, the minister of troughing, and her mates know that those hard working kiwis won’t make great donors come election time, but those telcos with a lazy hundy million or so nicely trousered away will make sure Curran and Cunliffe feel the full benefit of their trickle down economy.

This is Labour’s secret weapon for funding their election campaign. The only problem is the extreme ineptness of Curran who keeps claiming one thing while the opposite occurs. Perhaps she and Labour should start putting the pressure on the greedy telcos seeking to increase their bottom line by wrecking an infrastructure company on the way through.

Surely the workers deserve those savings not the fat cat telcos.
