Summary:
* The National Party has nothing to do with this.
* This action was taken to ensure that future governments can't take liberties like this again, and to show them that they are not above the law.
* It will also hopefully limit Parliamentary Service, and allow them to refuse to sign cheques which look dodgy.
* This is not an anti-Labour tactic, almost all parties have been guilty of this, but Labour was by far the worst offender.

Also, Transparency International has warned that New Zealand's reputation for low corruption could be at risk:
Labour risks harming New Zealand's reputation if it refuses to repay taxpayer funds unlawfully spent on campaigning and changes the law to make it legal, an anti-corruption watchdog has warned.

They are also concerned about anonymous donations to parties.
