    I am disappointed that he has opted to give the money back.

    Not great to cave to media beat up in my view.

    Now he just looks damned foolish.

    I guess he will try to take the moral high ground here.

    Let's see how this all plays out for him.

    What a massive beat up.

    If you won't take a free house then pay for it from your own damn salary or sell down one of the "excess" investment properties.
    Or perhaps Cindy could have left Premier House in a liveable state. I bet Harvard are nervously checking her current digs. "Erm, Dame Cindy, could you please make sure you leave the place in a liveable state when you go?"

    I was disappointed he caved as well. The best part of it though is we won't have to keep reading the foolish posts from Panda about it.

    I'm sure it's perfectly livable for someone who isn't picky.

    I am sure Luxon's standards are high given he is wealthy. So what?

    He is happy to live in his own apartment unless and until the issues identified in the independent report are resolved. That is not the issue.

    The issue is that he has been forced by the MSM mob to hand back something he (and every other MP) is perfectly entitled to under the existing rules set by Parliament.

    I think that is disgraceful and very short sighted. We want intelligent, hard working people to enter politics (instead of all chasing the money in the private sector) and then we just absolutel crucify them over some silly bullsh1t. Disgraceful.

    Its a continuation of the biased, nasty, MSM that we currently have in NZ. They are a disgrace and the sooner they are all de-funded (I resent having to pay tax to fund TVNZ and thus actively minimise my tax) the better.

    Yeah, this nonsense will make Luxon more amenable to the likes of Winnie now (who absolutely detests the media).

    What a crock of shxt from Hipkins and the MSM. Bloody disgrace and agree - the sooner the whole lot goes the same way as Newshub, the better.

    List of Labour ministers who claimed the allowance in the last 3 years:

    four ministers (Duncan Webb, Jan Tinetti, Deborah Russell, and Willie Jackson) claimed the capped allowance, of up to $45,000 a year, to cover living costs in the city. They then use it to pay rent on property they already own.
