This morning's Herald carries a story which implicates David ('I'm running the show) Cunliffe fair and square in the gun along with Carter and Jones with regard to the Chinese imposter donations to Labour scandal. Does anyone remember the chorus of denigration heaped upon Ian Wishart when he broke the story? Yes. Did the Herald acknowledge Wishart's role? No.
It seems the police investigation into this sordid tale is about to conclude.
Investigations by police and immigration into possible identity fraud, money laundering and immigration fraud are nearing completion after a visit in November by three detectives to China. It hasn't been determined whether charges will be laid.
Of course the Herald blithely imagines the charges being considered relate to the Chinese party fund raiser.
The person who should be charged, convicted and jailed is ex minister, Labour's last hope, Shane Jones.
