National Radio is going to have me on at around 4.40 pm today (during Jim Mora’s panel) to report on impressions from the Privileges Committee hearing with Owen Glenn. It might be earlier if things wrap up earlier.
I doubt I can update from the hearing (which is a pity) so NZ Herald and Stuff are probably best places to look for reports.
The hearing may be not very exciting. Winston is not appearing. Owen Glenn will repeat what he has said in his earlier statements. He may not have documents to prove it, because receiving a phone call by its nature tends not to be documented, and it did happen three years ago. What will be interesting is whether the Labour MPs aggressively go after Owen Glenn and try and discredit their largest donor in order to protect Winston.Tags: DPF, Owen Glenn, Privileges Committee, Radio NZ
