Parliamentary debate this afternoon is worth watching (Ch22) – on the subject of the resignation of the Hon Maurice Williamson as a Minister.
Action in the House re “Cabinet Clubs” puts that sleazy little arse Minister of Immigration Michael Woodhouse at the centre of Mr Donghua Liu chequebook politics.
“Mr Woodhouse also said he discussed immigration issues at a National Party fundraiser which Chinese migrants attended.”
[Is the Herald saying Jing Song forgot to gift the National Party – via Cabinet Minister – a handsome backhander (sorry, donation) for the right to build her China-financed $100m hotel at Dunedin, without interference from DCC ???] [She and her overseas backers might have more luck at Christchurch, although not at height, if National relaxes immigration barriers to non-English-speaking investors from China.]
