O'Connor offered to resign portfolio over rugby tour

O'Connor offered to resign portfolio over rugby tourBesieged minister Damien O'Connor offered to resign his Corrections portfolio over the parliamentary rugby tour controversy, but was turned down by Prime Minister Helen Clark, he said today.
Speaking to reporters at Auckland Airport…
[NZ Politics]

O'Connor should go, but not for his rugby playing mate but for his general incompetence.

David has the supposed txt translation of the resignation.

Here's my take:

O'Conner: Yo H my bad I qwt

Helen: Yo D u r my btch :) H2 wll srt u l8tr xxox

What a bunch of friggin teenagers resigning and running the country by txt. O'Conner must be a coward as well for notfacing up to the Wrath of Helen in person.

If someone txt'd me their resignation I would not accept it so I could fire them in person.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
