In a smart and intelligent move, today commerce minister Lianne Dalzeil allowed liquidator Jeff Meltzer to announce that the government will provide funding to assist unravel the nightmare that is BlueChip.
I thought right from the start this mess would get political and today it did. With over four thousand people involved in the biggest ripoff since petrol tax and an election in the offing this has to be the gift Labour have been looking for. They can be seen to be running down and punishing a genuine 'rich prick' who made his millions on the backs of innocent hard working greedy tax dodging kiwis.
This has got to be worth at least two points in the polls for Labour and if they can manipulate the police and the courts to have the bastard jailed in October, then they probably will win their coveted fourth term.
