This morning the Herald reveals that Peters has still been talking to Owen Glenn about the appointment of an Honorary Consul for Monaco - as recently as May this year, AFTER his denials if receiving a donation from Glenn. The Herald also reveals that Peters has been asking Glenn to "make undertakings":
"It also indicates that Mr Glenn, an expatriate freight magnate, is making undertakings that would help his chances of Mr Peters' approving the appointment.
Mr Glenn, who has several homes around the world, told Mr Peters in the letter he planned to live in Monaco "until further notice".
And he displayed his credentials as a generous benefactor to New Zealand charitable causes by telling Mr Peters he had made a $100,000 donation to the Millennium Institute of Sport and Health on the North Shore.
The institute confirmed the figure last night and said it started talking with Mr Glenn about 18 months ago.
Mr Glenn also told Mr Peters he would "look forward to receiving from you further details on the projects that you brought to my attention".
Mr Glenn's letter is dated May 8, just after Mr Peters arrived home from an extensive visit to Europe."
OK - let's get this straight. Do we take it from this letter between Glenn and Peters that Glenn is being asked to put his money where his mouth is to show the strength of his commitment to New Zealand? And if Mr Glenn is making charitable donations to worthy causes around New Zealand, could it be that a portion of such donations is being tagged as from a political party - especially a political party which owes $158,000 to the taxpayer of New Zealand?
We live in interesting times, don't we?
