Just days after hyperactive National Party government minister Nick Smith fell under the proverbial bus, John key's problems have continued. Nick Smith had admitted gross errors of judgement while he was ACC minister. He will never forget being involved with the former National Party activist Bronwyn Pullar.
The taxpayer will probably pick up the tab for any legal bills associated with the threatened court action undertaken by the present ACC minister Judith Collins. She is now feuding with Labour MP's Andrew Little and Trevor Mallard and is demanding apologies from the two members of Parliament, and Radio NZ for reporting their comments. They consider Collin's threats as nothing more than attempts to gag them. Trevor Mallard claims he has never lost a court case over such petty actions.
John Key has obviously encouraged Collins to take legal action over the matter. Privately he probably hopes she will fall flat on her face.
Key's economic predictions are going down the tube. Standard and Poors comments have not been helpful either.
Recent claims that increasing power charges could see poor seniors having their power disconnected will cause future headaches. No more Pike River or Christchurch earthquakes to create issues to hide behind.
