Lockwood Smith Discussion Suggests Hidden Agenda
Senior National Party MP Lockwood Smith was recorded talking to delegates at the National Party conference suggesting once in government that a 'discussion document' process will enable the party to roll out its agenda.
The audio records Lockwood Smith saying: "There's some bloody dead fish you have to swallow... to get into Government to do the kinds of things you want to do... and you have to balance up what really matters."
"If you try to do everything differently you'll scare the horses and under MMP it's very hard to win."
"Once we have gained the confidence of the people, we've got more chance of doing more things… We may be able to do some things we believe we need to do, perhaps go through a discussion document process... you wouldn't be able to do them straight off. ... I'm hoping that we'll do some useful things that way, that may not be policy right now."
