Kiwiblog author David Farrar and celebrity gossip columnist Patrick Gower are crafting a news story from Labour's leadership candidates travelling around the country at - gasp! - taxpayers' expense! How can this be possible?
How indeed. Well, I refer readers to this recent news story, which one has to imagine both Farrar and Gower are aware of: MPs unite to keep travel perk in-house. Exerpts:
MPs on all sides are joining forces to defend the right to set their own unlimited travel perks - despite a Government promise to transfer them to an independent body.
Mr Key has accepted the changes and says National MPs will vote for the amended bill when it came before Parliament again.
Those damn Labour MPs!
