    Politics News: Peters Claims National Knows Who Leaked The Emails

    Foreign Minister Winston Peters says he's aware who the email-mole is inside the National Party. He informed TVNZ's Agenda programme on Saturday that an "insider stole them from inside the National Party". Mr Peters said he had a good idea who the person was, but distanced himself from any wrongdoing in acquiring the e-mails. He said he knew where they came from "and I've got good reason to believe that." See... Peters Claims National Knows Who Leaked The Emails [1]

    Environment: Labour Welcomes National's Endorsement

    Environment Minister David Benson-Pope today welcomed National’s belated endorsement of the government’s environmental policies. “You have to wonder where Nick Smith and the National Party have been all this time and whether they have really sorted out their differences within their caucus. “The National Party has borrowed extensively from the government's Sustainable Water Programme of Action with its focus on water quality and water allocation, right down to the very detail of "transferable consents”.
