Whats Dunne is Done.
The good intentions of United Futures attack on Mr Boshier will be their undoing.
In an urgent email to Party President Graeme Reeves, this morning, I have asked for him to clarify the party’s position.
What deputy leader Judy Turner has done (and I fully support her) is represent United Futures position.
Peter Dunne as Revenue Minister is also responsible for child support legislation and those cases are heard in the family court. Mr Dunne is bound by collective responsibility and therefore must represent Labours Position on the family court in Revenue Issues.
You simply can’t have the United Future party leader saying the family court is good and the deputy leader saying the court is bad.
We know Labour is not interested in Fathers issues, but United Future say they are.
This is insane politics.
Clearly Mr Dunne cannot be Minister of Revenue and Leader of United Future. It’s making a mockery of our political system.
Mr Reeves must call upon Peter Dunne to resign and Judy Turner to take over the Leadership of United Future or alternatively United Future withdraws from this ridiculous makeshift coalition, stitched together by Helen Clarke at the last Election.
To top it off today Mr Dunne stood up in the debating chamber and castigated the other partys’ for Political Barbarism.
This ridiculous gimcrack government is not going progress Fathers Issues.
