Kiwiblog is carrying a story tonight with information on 2007 donations to political parties as released by the Electoral Commission today. Read all about it here:
So what's the big story here? Well, let's back the truck up for a moment. Which of the two major parties made lots of noise last year about anonymous donations, big money, and the need for transparency in election funding? Need a hint? It wasn't National! Next question - which of the two major parties received anonymous donations toalling $200,000? Here's another hint. It wasn't National!!
Is this more hypocricy from Labour, was it merely a lack of common sense by the Electoral Commission is releasing this information to the public, or is the government merely confused?
