The tipline has been humming this morning with news about Shane Jones.
Several sources have confirmed that he is not happy with David Shearer for throwing him under the bus…the word is he even dropped the C-bomb in terse discussions with Shearer. He is set to announce his exit rather than wait around for up to year while the Auditor-General peers into his affairs as a minister.
On that note it is also rumoured that Carol Beaumont is packing her bags to take up her place on the list when Jones exits in short order.
