The Crown Law Office will advise police by the end of next week whether or not to prosecute the Labour Party for alleged over spending in the 2005 election.
How the hell will Crown Law wriggle out of the fact that Labour spent $446,000 from Helen Clark’s leader’s fund, on pledge cards for purely electoral purposes?
Labour is trying to divert the police onto other areas and the police are now investigating the Exclusive Brethren pamphlets distributed widely before the election.
How does a political party incorrectly spending taxpayer’s money to win an election, compare in any way to a private organisation spending its own money to discredit parties and policies they disapprove of?
Crown Law’s decision will be crucial to the future of this government.
