What can you say about a party that breaks the rules it helped to enact, makes a half-hearted apology, says it won’t do it again then does it again while under investigation by the police?
Whaleoil has a flyer that was delivered in West Auckland yesterday.
It has the parliamentary crest which means you and I paid for it. That is stretching the rules because it is for political not parliamentary purposes.
It has no authorisation statement. That is breaking the rules.
What does it say about Labour?
They’re broke and so desperate they’ll stretch the rules around parliamentary funding and they’ll break the law – again – even while under investigation for the same offence.
If you can’t trust a party to work within the rules you can’t trust them to rule.
