And yet when it comes to him spending our money to chopper to a golf club party the (informal) “protocol” of getting there before the Governor General is absolute?
And when Parliament wants to know if Key would have been late to a meeting if not his helicopter pilot offering to fly him to Auckland instead of Hamilton, which we later paid $2,000 for – well, that can’t be revealed because of, you guessed it ‘protocol’.
It looks to me like the Nats are happy to pick and choose which rules they stick to or make up. Especially when it comes to justifying pissing our money away.
Perhaps the serious threat they’re concerned about most is the threat to brand Key.
