Where's the public accountability?

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Helen Clark sure knows how to pick her Ministers with three of them currently being investigated for a range of different issues.

NZPA reports that police have completed the Benson-Pope assault inquiry, but are delaying whether to lay charges or not. The article also mentiones that the investigation in Pete Hodgson’s alleged assault on a protester at a public meeting “has slowed”.

The question needing to be asked here is why has all of this only come out after the election? Considering that the Benson-Pope allegations were raised months ago, it is interesting that the police have conveniently held off on releasing the information until now.

Similar questions are being asked about Taito Phillip Field and Tiler-gate where the PM waited until after the election before she acted on the allegations made against him. Earlier this week we also saw a report of education officials being instructed to withhold information until after the election. And don’t forgetthe student loan costings that Labour unsuccessfully tried to hide.

Clark and her government have made a habit of betraying the country by continually avoding public accountability.
