Lawyer Speak – Winston First
There is a fascinating transcript of an interview NBR did with Brian Henry about how Winston financed, or did not finance, his legal bill, well actually it’s not a bill (yet) for the Electoral Petition last election (That Winston lost,).
It’s well worth reading because it shows you just the level of moral chicanery that these guy’s are up too.
I’ve seen this sort of thing before. It’s the same convoluted arguments and justifications and legalese, it’s something people in countries like China, Tonga, Pakistan, Russia would be used to hearing. Coincidentally all these countries are right down bottom of Transparceny International’s list rating corruption in countries internationally.
Fortunately we are still number one, but this sort of thing makes you wonder how long we can hold that spot, because I think it’s a slippery slope we are on!
Here’s the link to NBR’s interview... ‘enjoy’!
