Update on NZ First donations

Claire Trevett says NZ First divided $158,000 between nine charities.

Speaker Margaret Wilson confirmed she’s received the list but it was up to NZ First or the charities to divulge the names.

Surf Lifesaving NZ and the Sensible Sentencing Trust say they haven’t benefitted from the party’s largesse. There must be thousands of charities in NZ – given NZ First’s zenophobia I think we can ignore overseas charities 🙂 .

It’s going to take a long time to check them all and there would be no need to do so if NZ First paid its debt to Parliamentary Services because then the money would be the party’s not ours so the names would be irrelevant.
