Hopefully she paid her own way down, but knowing how Parliament works, I doubt it:
University of Otago graduate and Green Party politician Holly Walker is calling on Dunedin students to get involved in politics – even if that means signing up to another party.
Ms Walker, who was in town recruiting Green Party members at Clubs Day on Wednesday, said students – many of whom had just reached voting age – should choose the party which best matched their beliefs.
Um, why couldn’t the Greens’ resident Dunedin MP do this? Ms Walker continues:
”I have been coming to O-Week every year since I was elected. It is a great way to meet students and it’s always nice for me personally, because I spent so much time here.”
Your taxes. Paying for trips down memory lane and recruitment drives since 2011….
