The best quote on the topic comes from William over at Farrar’s place:
I see the following today from a story in the Dominion on the HFee deal…
“In the end the government was also criticised for benefitting at the expense of Equiticorp creditors and shareholders by turning a blind eye to the H fee transaction.The government was ordered by the courts to pay $268m as its share of liability for the sale of NZ Steel.
The judge at the time said the government “unjustly enriched” itself through the shonky deal.” I wonder if it is worth posting a picture, DPF, of any Government Cabinet ministers from this time, especially those with the initials HC?
Surely if she “worked” for the same organisation that did a shonky deal she must have known about this…. hell, she might even have signed something to authorise it, as we know her propensity for signing work that isn’t hers.
