Big Money buying elections

Where is the big money in elections. Labour would have you believe that it is National that has the “big money” but you’d be wrong.

The Electoral Commission lists five third party unions affiliated to the Labour Party, who are applying to be listed as third parties; their decision is pending the decision on the EPMU.

But in addition to this there are five other third parties listed–from the CTU to the NZUSA, to the PSA, to Martin Cooney in two guises: the National Union of Public Employees and “Health Cuts Hurt”.

So far the unions intend to spend up to $1.2 million attacking the National Party this election.

So where is the “big money”?

Why it is Labour’s “big money” union bully boys of course.
