Sir Robert and Winston

OK, so my pessimism of last week on the Peters front has eased. Maybe there will eventually be enough dirt to bring Peters down. And if anyone can do it Sir Robert Jones is the man to try.

More importantly, maybe there will be enough dirt to bring about public financing?
And an Australian-style corruption watchdog?

Jones' account of pre-EFA electoral financing arrangements of all the parties, as he saw it, on Morning Report last week was very enlightening and suggests stories about murky funding arrangements could run for a very long time and be targetted against any major party.
