Few would be surprised that the never aired TVNZ interview alleging perjury before the scampi select committee inquiry has made its way onto the Internet, and is on various video sharing sites and political blogs.
Neither TVNZ nor TV3 have shown it, but I suspect many New Zealanders will get to view it on the Internet, as it is near impossible to kill off material once it has appeared online.
The allegations and issues around the scampi inquiry are too serious to ignore. The next Government, regardless of who is in power, should order a full judicial inquiry into the issues and allegations. There may be nothing to them, but if that is the case, then those accused should welcome the chance to have their names and reputations cleared.
