From Colin’s blog:
It’s time for National to put its mouth where its money is.
After a week of climbing into Labour boots and all over the Owen Glenn saga, one thing has become abundantly clear: the Nats have lost any defence of their right to keep their own campaign donations secret.
It is the height of hypocrisy for National to claim, as both its leader John Key and deputy Bill English have done this week, that ‘Labour’s relationship with its largest donor looks very murky indeed’ when National’s own relationship with its donors is not so much murky as totally hidden.
All week National has been stirring the pot, demanding to know more about what Labour promised Owen Glenn in return for his financial assistance. Right, I’d like to know just what National promised its donors last time around. Well first I’d like to know who the donors were, full stop.
