Again with the partisan politics. I would be asking these questions of the government of the day no matter who they were. Said that enough times but you and a number of other posters seem to always bring it back to a labour vs national thing which it just so isn't. The problem is that much of it has occurred within the last 6 years.
And one thing I know for certain is now the lid has been blown off the chances and terms of reference for the detailed enquiry from the government of the day couldn't be more different.
Show me where I've made this into a Labour V National thing. You will note I said above David Cunliffe, Helen Clarke or anyone else, that was meant to encompass people like Winston Peters, Russell Norman Peter Sharples et al.
We have only ever had either a Labour or National government for the last 60 or so years so it's hard compare what might or might not have happened with any other party or group.
You attempt to make it seem you are partisan and accuse me of being biased then make this statement "The problem is that much of it has occurred within the last 6 years." Who has been the government for the last six years? If that's not making it into a Labour V National thing I don't know what is.
From my point of view I think by including people who were not leaders of the government for the last 6 years is disingenuous and trying to divert the argument from who was in government.
The vast majority of the issues occured within the last 4 years. And which political parties have committed to a full and independent review. Or perhaps thought another way.
1) Which party do you believe would run a full and frank review to follow up on the Kitteradge report?
2) Will the review ensure the scope is as wide as possible?
3) Will the issues that are found be resolved?
I know whay my views are on the above questions especially when you take into account the last month or so of dirty politics. With the inability to answer seemingly easy questions.
I would hold whatever government of the day to the same high standard.
