Kerre Woodham: Should there be an inquiry into Sharma's allegations? I think so

Extraordinary this morning really, wasn't it? Did you hear the interview? I hope you did.

Former Labour MP Louisa Wall gave us a hint that all was not necessarily light and love among the Labour Party faithful in her valedictory speech earlier this year.

Remember when she said she was forced out of her Manurewa electorate before the last election by quote, the unconstitutional actions of the Party President and some members of Labour's governing body.

She said she was devastated and she labelled the ouster corrupt.

We thought that was quite something. Fancy that, Louisa Wall coming out and saying that she was being forced out of Parliament.

She was told she was not wanted as an MP. She was unconstitutionally forced out of her own electorate and we thought things are bit grim there, not all is well.

Then Dr Gaurav Sharma pressed the red button in a form of mutually assured destruction.

The disgruntled Hamilton West MP claims he's been let down by parliamentary services and he says the system at Parliament is rotten and alleges a rampant culture of bullying within the Labour Party.

He detailed his grievances with Mike Hosking this morning. He finished the interview by saying we could all draw our own conclusions when he was asked by Mike if the Prime Minister is lying. He didn't say yes or no, but he said draw your own conclusions.

Where do you stand on this one? It's pretty clear his parliamentary career is over, he will be expelled.

Should there be an official inquiry, you would have to say that Labour, in general, loves a good, enquiry. Should there be one into the matters that Doctor Sharma has raised? I would have thought yes.
