Labour condoning Taurima’s use of TVNZ to campaign for them

March 5th, 2014 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

John Drinnan at NZ Herald reports:

has extended the deadline for selection of the candidate for Tamaki Makaurau electorate to allow for Television New Zealand inquiry into Party activism at the TVNZ Maori and Pacific unit.

This is a clear indication that their head office is holding the seat open for Taurima. The appropriate response would be to declare that as Taurima showed such appallingly bad judgement that he thought it was okay to run a Labour Party branch from within TVNZ, that they don’t think he has the judgement to be a candidate. Instead they delay the nominations to benefit him, which obviously reflects their view that the only thing he did wrong was to get caught.

The selection period could be extended further of the inquiry was not complete by March 28, Barnett said.

However long he needs, they’ll comply.

    In an ideal world it’d be put up for tender, and Fox would submit the winning bid.

    Along which Cunliffe’s new COS turning up as “whanau support” for one of the other “moonlighters” this just adds more wood to the fire of TVNZ’s M&P unit and labour being seriously locked at the hip

    The corruption runs very deep in the Labour Party, and that malign cancer needs to be excised.
    On second thought, it is better to leave it untouched until the rotten structure collapses after electoral defeat.

    I think they view it as impressive commitment to the Communist struggle.
