The NZ First funding diagram

July 29th, 2008 at 10:27 am by David Farrar

Tim Selwyn at has done this nice little slush fund diagram to help people understand how it all works. Good job.

If there is a second edition, one could add on next to as a collector of money, and also the as funders.

    Is there space on the diagram for the taxpayers who are still owed $158,000 and the poor deluded people who actually believed Peters when he said NZ First would be “keeping them honest”?

    I’m still wondering if the slush fund pays for all of Winstons lawsuits, or all of Winstons Giorgio Armani suits

    Looks like a real who’s who of assorted rogues and vagabonds. I bet those poor souls dragged into Winnie’s sordid little scandle would just wish he would go away.

    Farrar, you bugger – you forced me to register for comments.

    Credit adjustment. I am the one responsible for designing all our in-house graphics/images – not Bomber. (No MInister made the same error)

    I am re-working the diagram now to include the other components including how Wayne Peters implied that money did get from the trust to NZ First. I had an interesting talk to our co-blogger (and NBR political editor) Ben Thomas about his conversation he had with Brian Henry. The internal Chinese walls between Henry and his colleagues is so improbable and confusing it is difficult to represent visually – let alone verbally. … but I’m working on it.

    Good effort…. but then he cites one and only one reference – and it’s Wikipedia. Most Universities will fail you for that…

    Tim Selwyn writes about the Chinese Walls about Brian Henry and others.
    I have always thought that the problem with chinese walls is that there can be too many chinks in them.
