Hide Evicted

It seems that Rodney Hide has been kicked out of his office for is part in the Pope David-Benson saga.

The office was provided free of charge by Bob Jones, but in a recent message to Pope David-Benson he wrote: "A quick note to say how disgusted I am at Hyde's [sic] loathsome carry-on re tennis-balls etc… I cannot find anyone not of the same view."

Has Hide's "muckraking" gone too far, or has Bob Jones just spat the dummy?? Probably a bit of both!

Hide and Judith Collins did the right thing by exposing Benson-Pope and for keeping up the attacks when he lied to Parliament. But on the other hand, rarely do we ever hear policy being promoted by Rodney. It is always scandal, scandal, scandal.

This story doesn't reflect too well on Bob Jones either though. What the hell is Jones doing sending letters of support to a Minister who should have resigned months ago?!
