The H-fee fiasco hasn’t blown up. Well it has – but it’s a minor smoke bomb and it’s exploded in Labour’s face.
Labour had hoped that Key signed off on the $66m Elders – Equiticorp foreign exchange scam in 1988. It would ha ve been gold wouldn’t it?
The signature looks the same – but it’s not Key.
Labour’s President Mike Williams spent a few days in Melbourne last week pouring over the 24 kilograms of papers. But he couldn’t access to the court documents easily.
He had to use the Australian Labour Party’s top lawyer to get a court order – through a judge – to get to the documents.
So who paid for the top lawyer and who paid the court filing fees? Was it the Labour Party?
