I was pretty happy to see a Minister gone last week. It seemed possible at the time that that would be the end of it. Possibly due to a combination of other things on my mind and a lack of insight. Meanwhile....
Debate at The Standard is overflowing with conspiracy theories. Unlike the previous 9/11 nutter theories, I'm inclined to believe there is significant internal strife in the National Party.
In parliament, Grant Robertson got Judith Collins to paint herself into a corner. It will only take a little leak to bring a complaint to the privileges committee, based on her answers, and there will be another minister gone. And there's a fairly good chance of a little leak, there are some bruised egos in the National caucus tonight. Nick Smith, for example, wants an enquiry to clear his name.
Whatever happens, this ACC privacy breach looks like it has legs.
