NZ Budget ‘Hack’: Robertson takes cover, throws Makhlouf to the wolves

30/05/2019

So the sacrificial lamb will be Gabriel Makhlouf to judge by this from RNZ

Just hours before delivering the Budget the Finance Minister issued a statement placing the blame on the Treasury for the fall out resulting from the Budget leak.

In a statement, Grant Robertson said he was very disappointed confidential Budget information was able to be accessed.

And he said it was disappointing that the Treasury did not seek to find more information as to how it had happened before referring the matter to the police.

Methinks Robertson is taking cover and throwing Makhlouf to the wolves.

More on this later, but I suspect Robertson was much more involved than he is prepared to admit.
