Full Coverage: Iraq, Nukes and Nat Foreign Policy

National Party Campaign Manager Doesn't Know If/How Much American Billionaire Has Donated Today while being interviewed on TVNZ's Agenda program, Education Minister Trevor Mallard accused the National Party of hiding their election donations "through [using] trust funds." When contacted by Scoop yesterday National Party campaign manager Steven Joyce explained that National hadn't received "any large donations" from Julian Robertson. "It is possible that [Mr Robertson] made an anonymous donation. It is also possible that he may have given to one of the trusts that periodically makes donations to us but again I have no knowledge of that. They don't tell me who gives the money so I don't know," he said. See... Mallard Attacks National's Use Of Trust Funds

Dr Brash Plays Down US Foreign Policy Friendly Statements - Dr Brash’s insistence this week that National Party policy is written purely for New Zealanders is a concerning development for lovers of the global free market and may spell the end of hopes for a Free Trade Deal (FTA) with the United States. If Dr Brash isn’t willing to advocate letting the odd nuclear-powered ship into New Zealand ports and is unwilling to assist the people of Iraq in enjoying freedom (those who are still alive), prospects of NZ dairy produce lining the supermarket shelves of Vermont look slim.
