Letter: Ex-Deputy PM pay

Now that “Hon” Tapaitau has been found guilty, and will be sentenced in due course, when will he repay all that extra money he was so unreasonably paid as DPM?

While suspended, he was still of course eligible to be paid his MP salary. However, due to the generosity of the PM, using OUR taxpayer’s money, paying out that extra $50,000 per year to keep Tapaitau on side, is something that we the voting public hope the PM remembers and eventually regrets.
