Now Hone’s proposed deal with the German multi-millionaire has been exposed, some in his party are wary. The Herald reports:
“I would be extremely concerned if Mana was to go into any arrangement with Kim Dotcom because what I think he stands for is the anti-thesis of what Mana is about to me,” she told the Herald last night.
Indeed, normally you’d expect Mana and UNITE to picket him for being a bad employer. But Hone wants his money it seems.
“In any way joining forces with a billionaire who is very likely a fraudster and under various legal challenges would really go against the kaupapa that I believe in.”
She said there had also been concerns about the poor payment or no payment of staff and poor payment or low payment of creditors.
“All this does not really one to think he is a person of credibility that a political party with mana in Aotearoa would want to be associated with.”
Well done Sue Bradford on staying true to her principles. She’s not in favour of selling out.
Labour’s Shane Jones said he visited the mansion late last year. But the discussion was limited to rap-music – and he had told leader David Cunliffe about the visit.
Rap music? Yeah, right. Are they any Labour MPs that haven’t visited Dotcom? If Shane Jones has been there, I presume every Labour MP has been invited at some stage. Maybe media can ask them all who has been?
It does make you wonder again if Dotcom is one of the secret donors to Cunliffe’s secret trust?
