Golden Glenn and Super Tuesday?

Let's hope so!
Owen Glenn is in town to clear his name.
And he tells the Herald's Audrey Young something that should put fear into the hearts of Liabour and New Zealand First.
Mr Glenn said he had brought some corroborative evidence - "such as we can looking back over three years, as much as we could establish".
Noting the various inquiries into Winston First, the report continues:
But Mr Glenn's testimony to the privileges committee could have other, equally serious consequences; police have the power to consider whether there is a criminal case of perjury to answer.
And there's more:
Given the seriousness of the allegation, Mr Glenn is likely to arrive with documentary proof, including an e-mail referred to in his previous evidence. Telephone records could also prove crucial.
But the fallout could widen if Mr Glenn is also asked who else knew about the donation, including whether he was first sounded out by anyone from within Labour.
In the meantime, what about Captain Baubles?
For him, the news is even bleaker.
Apparantly, he knew all along about the secretive Spencer Trust despite what he has said.
The Herald has learned Mr Peters was aware of how much money was kept in the trust at certain times, and that he directed staff to get it to pay party expenses from 2005 onwards.
Yup, with Owen Glenn giving his evidence today and the case against Captain Baubles getting ever stronger and serious, we look set for a Super Tuesday, especially if as likely, Liarbour's involvement in all this corruption will come under the spotlight too.

Labour's involvement is all that matters now.

Why else would Glenn come back.

The question now is: will labour nobble the committee by preventing it from offering Glenn immunity from prosecution for buying the 2005 election for Labour

In all this, the irony is that Winston remains Labour's poodle. And perhaps he will also take the fall for Labour.

So the question for Winston - which he still hasn't answered is - when did Labour offer him the $250K so that they could buy the election?
