The Taxpayers' Union have recently stated that Eleanor Catton should use her royalties to pay back her subsidies.
This was as a response to an interview Eleanor Catton gave to RNZ over the weekend, in which she labelled the Union 'sinister' while promoting her latest book.
Taxpayers Union Executive Director Jordan Williams says these comments from Catton came out of nowhere.
Jordan Williams says that Eleanor Catton's comments were still hypocritical, and that she should pay back her royalties to fund up and coming artists instead of complaining about New Zealand not funding the industry.
