The odds on an early election just got shortened

Privileges Committee to investigate Winston PetersThe most powerful committee in parliament will investigate whether NZ First leader Winston Peters broke parliament’s rules by not declaring a $100,000 contribution from Owen Glenn [TVNZ News Politics]

The odds on an early election just got shortened with the referral of Winston Raymond Peters to the Privileges Committee. With the Committee only able to investigate goings on in the cureent parliament it seems likely that Clark won’t want to tolerate nightly reviews of the goings on in the Committee on the 6 o’clock news.

Given that she is also polling on the situation and with the new haircut (shame about the face) it seems likely the election will soon be upon us.
