Two weekus horribilus for John Key and his administration...

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND - MARCH 21: Prime Minister John Key talks to media about the resignation of Nick Smith at Parliament on March 21, 2012 in Wellington, New Zealand. Minister Smith had been involved in controversy after he appeared to intervene for friend and National Party activist, Bronwyn Pullar with an ACC claim while he was ACC minister.

Nick Smith has gone under a bus after being embroilled in the Pullar ACC letters controversy.He has resigned his cabinet posts before John key felt obliged to sack him. Smith has admitted gross errors of judgement. Ms Pullar considered Nick Smith to be obviously one of her friends in high places? John Key has washed his hands of the whole matter. Any proven connection would see Key following Smith in walking the plank. Such a pity because a lot of people would now like to see the back of John key as much as that of the retreating Nick Smith.  The latter will stay on in Parliament to ensure National retains its one seat majority.

Certainly part of a weekus horribilus for PM John Key.
