Minister's office involved in conflict of interest case

Minister's office involved in conflict of interest caseThe State Services Commission says Environment Minister David Benson-Pope had no role in the conflict of interest case which resulted in the partner of a National Party press secretary losing her job.

The wihitewash has been released, as predicted Panty Slut-Boy is supposed to have had in role in the case.

But wait, is the State Services Commission expecting me to believe that it was a phone call from a staff member in Mr Benson-Pope's office that alerted the Ministry of the Environment to the relationship between Madeleine Setchell and Kevin Taylor and that Panty Slut-boy had no involvement with that phone call.

Oh puleeease, that is just not believable. It is beyond credibility that a staff member in the Minister's office acted with consultation with the minister. This is simply a case of the minister playing fast and loose and trying to be cute about it at the same time.

This nothing more that petulance and revenge from a minister who generally likes to get a good spanking rather than dish it out.
