    Aussies are like herding cats.. and putting NZers health at risk.
    To be expected - trust-based systems are difficult and people reckoned we should have had a bubble earlier.

    Maybe hes choosing to go after what's left of the national party vote.

    National goes from worse to worse.
    Someone buying furniture for the house on the tax payer's slate?

    Sources inside the National Party have told NZME that a staff member of the MP flagged a concern in the last term of Parliament, alleging items of furniture were bought out of the MP's taxpayer funds but did not appear in the office.

    National goes from worse to worse? I must have missed the part in the article where allegations of misuse were substantiated.

    T'would be even better if he took his replacement leader with him.

    That's a bit harsh isn't it FP? He's delivered in line with the track record on Kiwibuild, so shouldn't he receive a promotion? Perhaps to (borrowing from the Greens) Co-Prime Minister?

    Only paid for it when she was exposed and forced to.

    "The allegations surround a purchase of some furniture, including a new television, which allegedly were delivered and kept in Hipango's own home." J Collins "
    Some of it was something she could not actually claim for and therefore she had to repay it herself."

    There's your answer from Joshuatree.
    She's a list MP - shows the quality of their list.

    [From the newly posted non-paywalled article] "Collins said Hipango had stored some in a shed at home, some went into one of her electorate offices, and Hipango paid for some of it herself to keep."

    Some of items she purchased were above the funding cap though, and she purchased a sofa for her office in parliament, but was told to return it as parliament provides all furniture.

    The article also states she used her own furniture from home in her electorate office! Oh dear!

    Overall a bit na´ve, but nothing obviously fraudulent there. What did I miss?
