John Key is attacking David Cunliffe for using a trust to obscure some donations – whilst repeating the word ‘tricky’ about Cunliffe as many times in one sound-bite as humanly possible.
It’s an astonishingly brazen stone to throw given National’s glass house.
Do no reporters remember John Key, Hollow Man, or anything about National’s funding structure? It’s just trusts obscuring any knowledge of their donors from one wall to the other.
But was there a question back to him about that?
Cunliffe managed a difficult pair of regulations – one requiring him to reveal donors, the other requiring him not to. Labour / parliament need to harmonise their rules. But Cunliffe’s Trust is but a grain of sand against the mountain of hidden murkiness that is National’s network of favours and donations. What are they promising to whom?
A lot more than some fake smear about Matt McCarten.
