Come On Jacinda And Damien Name The 13 Tourists You Are Taking With You

with 6 comments

This morning I heard Mike Hosking ask Damien O’Connor if he would name the 13 Business People accompanying them next week to Singapore and Japan – as is the way with Labour Cabinet Ministers he evaded the question.

Jamie Mackay also interviewed O’Connor today and obviously that topic was off limits. Jamie said some weeks ago that they now had to send a list of topics to O’Connor before each regular fortnightly interview – no room for off the cuff stuff with this Government.

Call me a cynic if you like but I think this most open and transparent government are hiding something about this jaunt which may well come back and bite them in their collective shiny arses.

So here is my guess on how the 13 is made up:

Iwi Representatives 10

LGBT Representatives 2

Genuine Business Person (Female) 1
