2012: The year in politics

It has been a busy year at Parliament for the 3 News political team.
The Government’s asset sales programme was delayed, Kim Dotcom took on John Banks and the GCSB, ACC’s board was cleaned out and Nick Smith resigned in tears.
Brendan Horan was kicked out of NZ First, Judith Collins went to court and Labour’s leadership woes continued.
Hekia Parata’s first term as Education Minister was plagued by a strained relationship with the chief executive of her Ministry, Novopay failing, losing in court over a proposed school closure, a botched merger plan for schools in Christchurch and a number of other problems.
Political Editor Patrick Gower and editor Kelle Laufiso-Finau put together a montage of some of 2012’s greatest political hits.
Watch the video for Gower’s wrap of the year in politics.

Yep up until May 29th 2012 John Banks was a shareholder in Talent2 Don.
Just as John Key has connection to Goldman Sachs the company selling off New Zealands assets.
And John Brain Dotgone has shares in the bank of america, the same bank that holds our international debt.
Never trust a right winger with money, they are all dirty as sin.
