The Dom Post cites a “well-placed NZ First source” that NZ First has banked at least one cheque bearing the Simunovich name.
And the problem for Winston, if this is true, is:
Mr Peters was asked in 2004 if his party had received donations from Simunovich Fisheries when it was revealed that his adviser, former National MP Ross Meurant, was also working for Simunovich. “I’m saying no,” Mr Peters said.
The Hive recalls previous issues with Smunovich.
We also have the latest response from Helen Clark’s Minister of Foreign Affairs:
WP: Got your tape rolling, Phil?
WP: I told you I’m not talking to a lying gripper
WP: You know what that is? That is a lying wanker who won’t let go. See you.
Helen Clark promised new standards for her Government when she was elected. This is obviously what she meant. This is not Muldoonism. This is far beyond anything Muldoon did.Tags: anonymous donations, Helen Clark, Phil Kitchin, Simunovich Fisheries, Winston First
