Conflict of interest or a conflict of patience?


Minister put on final warning
Internal Affairs Minister Richard Worth is on a final warning from Prime Minister John Key after embarrassing questions over a private trip to India forced Dr Worth to resign his Indian business interests. Mr Key made it clear yesterday he was unhappy with Dr Worth's failure to reveal the extent of his business interests published by The Dominion Post yesterday before he sanctioned the trip.

John Key says he is a patient man, but really? Isn’t this a conflict of patience? COME ON, Richard Worth MISLED the Prime Minister, he didn’t tell the Prime Minister that he would be speaking formally as the Minister of Internal Affairs on the benefits of NZ for aviation training WHILE also being the director of an aviation training school AND that he had personally overseen a deal cut between the Indian aviation club and a technical institute in NZ – COME ON – the only way this could be more of a conflict of interest is if the Indian aviation club sent cash cheques to Richard Worth ‘for services rendered’.

It’s nice to see John Key is patient, a leader needs to be patient, but what more would Worth have to do to breach the Cabinet Manual guidelines than this?

Considering Helen Clark took forever in dealing with the allegations against Winston Peters I don't think anything is amiss here. Unless you think Clark should have ejected Peters as soon as possible Bomber?

You are completely wrong Gosman. What we had with Peters was allegations and 3 inquiries into him, none of which found him guilty of breaking the law - what we have with Worth is an admission on his part that he did in fact talk in his capacity as a Minister in a field where he has a conflict of interest - are you suggesting Gosman that Worth is lying about his culpability in this?

You should have a chat to Winston Peters. He`ll be able to tell you.

Aviation is the most expensive course available on student loans at a coupla a hundred grand a pop.

First we had the terrorist threat with someone linked to 9/11.

Then we have a coupla deadly crashes with third world instructors from India to blame at Massey university.Now we have a proposal for an fta with the dairy owners from hell.Man we need this deal like a mothafucka.
