A Labour MP on why unions wil be exempt!

This is stunning. Listen to Labour MP Shane Jones on Newstalk ZB this morning.

The host was interviewing Katherine Rich and Shane Jones on the proposed electoral law changes and restrictions on third parties. He then asked Shane Jones

“Why would you exempt Unions?”

The reply from Mr Jones:

“They’re valuable and long term supporters of ours etc”

If you do not believe me click on the link above and go to 1:40 minutes through. I mean one has to commend Mr Jones for his honest answer, but doesn’t this prove what the motivation behind these changes are – to benefit their supporters and hurt their opponents?
