David Farrar has let slip that he has been privy to information which is only intended for select committee members.
Tim Watkins covers this over on pundit:
The most interesting part is in relation to a letter that Countdown sent to the commerce select committee….
“Third, I’m curious how you know about the contents of the letter. No-one on the select committee would release it to us or even confirm its contents; doing so would have broken privilege. So I can only assume that either an MP has leaked it to you at risk of a privileges committee hearing or that you’ve been briefed by Countdown on this. Isn’t that something you should declare openly?”
Yes Tim, it definitely is something that David Farrar should declare openly.
And John Key needs to front up to the media about National’s relationship with David Farrar because this stinks.
