Interesting disclosure from David Farrar yesterday. He, along with Matthew Hooton, and (waste of members money) PSA are bankrolling Bryce Edwards, one of the few remaining supporters of the Alliance, to provide the political commentary which mainly attacks Labour and the Greens from the looney left. The guy makes Margaret Mutu look like a well balanced academic.
As we all know the majority of Farrar’s income comes from the taxpayer via a “research” arrangement.
I wonder if Bill English signed the deal off or whether it was just a nod and a wink.
