Greenpeace head and former Green Party co-leader Russel Norman said it was “disgraceful” NZ First had veto power over appointments for a review of an industry they were clearly close to.
“It’s completely unacceptable for a party whose leading member is bankrolled by Talley’s to be vetoing panel appointments,” Norman said.
He noted the previous Government had finally agreed to put cameras on boats, a decision put on ice by Nash.
“We now have a case where the Labour/NZ First Government is taking a worse position on fishing than the National Party.”
Yet the Greens sit in Government and do and say nothing in return for the baubles of office.
