I’m hoping that someone (a fellow Standard author perhaps?) puts in an OIA over the South Canterbury Finance bailout. And here’s what I’d like them to ask:
– How many cabinet ministers excused themselves from the bailout decision due to a conflict of interest?
– How many ministers and/or their extended families had investments in SCF? Especially how many invested after the Crown Guarantee extension was made, receiving 8% interest on their investment?
– What was the reasoning behind the decision to pay out the interest, which wasn’t necessary under the terms of the extension?
