Don't ask, don't tell
"Truth Seeker" left a comment on the blog today regarding my previous post on the chances of Labour winning the election.
Being proudly unknowing appears to be the defining feature of far too many Kiwis these days. They will never agree, of course, because they don't know what they don't know....and don't want to know
I think that sums up Helen Clark pretty well with regard to the Spencer Trust, the trust that funds Winston Peter's legal bills and more. Peters promised to provide details of the trust.
He won't tell despite promising to. She won't ask, saying she has to take "the honourable member at his word"
As Peters promised to tell, Clark should take his word, given she maintains she has to.
Or as today's Herald editorial says:
If Helen Clark does not want to inquire into her governing partner's financial arrangements it can only suggest she has no confidence that she might hear an explanation she could defend in public.This is the time when Helen Clark should be a truth seeker, but unfortunately, to her, power is more important than truth and more important than running the country.
Update Rodney Hide has lodged complaint about Winston Peters with The Serious Fraud Office. Because it is serious fraud the PM is ignoring and the privileges committee is gutless.
