The Whinebox Inquiry

It's finally happened - Tracy Watkins of the Dompo's reported that Winston's up before Parliament's privileges committee.

Admittedly it's only the ongoing Owen Glenn donation that wasn't but actually was, and not the latest debacle with Bob Jones' money (that's a doozey), but it isn't often that Winnie has to account for his dealings.

I love the direct/indirect quote from the Speaker Margaret Wilson:
She told Parliament Mr Peters had provided her with a "very full and compelling"explanation of his position, but she had referred to the privileges committee because of the "high public interest and the impolications for the reputation of members and the institution of Parliament".
Here's hoping for some compelling drama to come. Regardless, it'll be prime pickings for Dim.
