ZenTiger Statute of Limitations

Remember how Mallard became the poster boy for Labour's 14 million dollar campaign "Just say NO! to violence, unless you are a Labour MP"? After the punch up, Rodney Hide laid a complaint with the Speaker of the House, Labour MP Margaret Wilson. From Half Done:
Before Parliament began, Ms Wilson issued the letter she had written to Mr Hide rejecting his privileges complaint over the stoush.

She said the ACT Party leader did not raise the matter in time and had not done it the right way.

“If a member wishes to have the Speaker refer the matter to the Privileges Committee, the member must act immediately.

“This you failed to do,” she said.
The statute of limitations is only a few days when it comes to anything illicit the Labour Party are involved in, although that doesn't stop them passing retrospective legislation to ward off court cases (and other bad behaviour).

Wilson’s basically found Rodney guilty of a serious crime - bureaucratic snafu. On par with submitting a GST return a few days late, so I’m surprised he wasn’t arrested and taken off for a good beating.

Whether Mallard is innocent of a serious crime is something that will never be tested. Apparently, he must have filled out the right forms for fisticuffs. What foresight.
