Journalists always whine about the turn around time for Official Information Act requests.
They complain that the ministers treat the 20days as stipulated by law as a goal and a delaying tactics.
And yet when a minister who has information to hand and no reason to delay it they now whine it was a quick turn around.
Spare me, these pricks are so slippery when it comes to news.
Judith Collins’ office processed an Official Information Act request in just two days to release an email embarrassing then Serious Fraud Office head Adam Feeley in 2011.
The revelation comes as ripples from the Dirty Politics saga widened during the weekend after a series of bombshells including:
â Collins stepped down as Justice Minister after an email handed to the prime minister’s office raised questions about her involvement in what leaked emails appear to suggest was a campaign by Right-wing blogger Cameron Slater and others to undermine Feeley while he was SFO boss.
â Prime Minister John Key confirmed there would be an inquiry into Collins’s actions in relation to Feeley, with details of the inquiry to be announced today.
