    I watched part of Q+A.. discussing the J-LR issues; typical Tories (Boag & Mapp) saying ‘nothing to see here’ & ex-Lab. (Williams) saying its all a cover up; trying to sideline the $100k donation & implications of Chinese political influence ?!

    they also interviewed a Prof. who said there IS evidence of the Chinese Communist party, being involved in NZ politics; one Natl MP was a ‘teacher’ in a Chinese spy school, prior to coming to NZ ! BUT ‘nothing to see here’ was the echo from Boag/Mapp & ‘lets avoid racism’..

    ‘Chinese are worth more than Indians’ ???

      Back-to-work Clarke Gayford loses the beard

      That one needed the sensational headline to attract attention, Blazer. What with other less important stuff attracting everyone today.
