Oh dear, not one, not two, not three, not four but five Labour MPs were enjoying Sky City’s hospitality in a corporate box at last week’s rugby test.
There’s nothing wrong with that in general. Businesses entertain all sorts of people in their boxes and politicians enjoy hospitality from a range of hosts.
But something smells more than a little off when the MPs have been so very critical of the company and the government’s deal with it to build a convention centre.
MPs meet people with a range of views including those with which they disagree.
But casual meetings or formal business ones are very different from socialising in this way.
Does it mean that Labour doesn’t really mean what it says in opposing the Sky deal or is it just another example of behaviour which invites the use of the H word?
