More Sunlight, Please!

At last someone in the MSM is making the connection between the Vela donation to Winston Peters and the $9 million gift to the racing industry in Labour's 2008 budget. One is left gasping at the return on the Vela investment. $175k gets you $9m. Did the Vela family take the hat around the country's thoroughbred industry to raise the stake money? What other donations were received by Peters and his dubious connections from as yet undisclosed sources within the racing industry?

There is much more to this dirty little sleazy deal than meets the eye.

Duncan Webb

Duncan Webb asks all the right questions in his new blog. He rightly points out that the $9mil goes pretty quickly to race horse owners.

I hope he will look closely at every piece of government policy with which Peters has exerted influence and then examines the potential connections to NZ1 supporters and their cronies..

Duncan Garner will get a bit more respect when he stops using the heavily photo shopped pic of Clark when displaying graphics on stories he presents.
His sickening ability to "toss the salad" for Helen Clark over the last few years has made the grey lynn communist* look like Bill O'reilly.

I think you mean Duncan Webb as that is where your link went...

Thank you socrates. I thought it was just a side picture of Stephen Fleming.

Post corrected. Now I'll have to have another look to see what D Garner had to say.

Bloody group blogs with two duncans!

Barnsley Bill said...

And now my comment about Duncan Garner does not fit... It is still true though..

Spies tell me tomorrow's DomPost might well show Adolf to be spot on the money.

The Sunday Star Times had a story about the links between Peters 7 racing: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sundaystartimes/4631199a6619.html and the print edition had a summary which isn't on line but which I copied: http://homepaddock.wordpress.com/2008/07/27/he-helped-racing-racing-helped-him/
