Luxton trapped at club



Stuff NZ Newspapers


National Party leader Christopher Luxon, fellow Nats and members of the Chinese community were trapped in a bridge club for an hour by protesters. Rangit¯ıkei MP Ian McKelvie, who was one of those prevented from leaving the Palmerston North site yesterday, said about 60 people blocked the gate – among them Ricky Cribb, who ran for Advance NZ in the 2020 election and was fined for failing to file campaign donations and expense returns. Cribb was also at the Wellington anti-mandate protests and Parliament occupation. Everyone was able to leave after police arrived. No arrests were made.
