Whatever political influence the Exclusive Brethren had across the Tasman is evaporating.
Opposition Leader Don Brash says they had crossed the line.
“We want no association at all with people who try to influence the political process in an underhand way and that clearly includes the Exclusive Brethren,” he said.
“The original basis on which the exemption to the Exclusive Brethren was granted was on their submission that they were outside mainstream political activity,” she said.
Police have confirmed the private eyes they hired to pry on politicians will be investigated themselves.
