New Zealand First is reviewing its donation practices as the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) decides whether to probe allegations it’s been hiding donations in a slush fund.
No-one with any knowledge of running a political party and campaigns can understand how NZ First could do all it does without getting donations that should be declared.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern now wants a full independent look at political donation laws, and she’s refusing to say whether she trusts New Zealand First leader Winston Peters. . .
But Jacinda Ardern couldn’t express trust in her Deputy Prime Minister. When Newshub asked if she trusted Peters, she wouldn’t say “yes” or “no” instead replying, “We have an excellent working relationship”.
Ardern was asked three times but never once said yes she trusts him.
If she doesn’t trust him, how can we?
