Off with his head!

Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News
Off with his head!
Cabinet minister David Benson-Pope seems certain to lose his job after admitting he told Environment Ministry head Hugh Logan he could not work with communications manager Madeleine Setchell. That admission yesterday in Parliament contradicts statements he made to reporters earlier in the week. He said on Monday that Mr Logan knew nothing of his view when he made the decision to remove Ms Setchell from the job because her partner is the chief press secretary of National leader John Key. He now says he did have a coversation and made it clear he wouldn’t be as ‘open and frank’ with Ms Setchell, if this is true David Benson-Pope has go, if a Cabinet Minister is caught out lying to the media over an issue as important as neutral public service positions, that Minister has to go, it is a matter of principle.

Not only is the reasoning weak and flawed, the intrusion into the daily business of the public service falls outside his jurisdiction as a minister. Jen McCutcheon's partner is an ACT supporter..is she not to be trusted by her Labour "friends" because of this?! This guy is an fool, the sooner he goes the better.
