There goes the foreshore legislation

The Tamihere scandal gets more significant as the SST breaks the news that Tamihere had said he is no longer backing his government’s controversial foreshore and seabed legislation.

This means that if there is a by-election, they don’t even have the option of Tamihere standing to get a new mandate, as he won’t support the legislation. Indeed Labour may struggle to find a candidate who does.

The Government no longer has the numbers to pass the legislation, and the last thing they want is to have this as an issue still alive next year.
