More about Paula Bennett’s inappropriate relationship comment

Sources inside the National Party bunker are saying that senior members of the National Party were aghast with Paula Bennett’s recommendation and decision to talk about inappropriate relationships.

Everyone knows that politicians root and the press gallery root even more.

So the rooters in parliament are exceptionally concerned about Paula opening up all the parliamentarians to rooting allegations.  

Paula appears to be on the outer on this one, with many senior Nats shaking their heads in disbelief.

She’s not smart enough to realise that someone might ask about the nature of concurrent relationships with Richard and Alan.

This is the kind of thing that could easily end a political career. Aspiring candidates in Upper Harbour are on manoeuvres already.

Make no mistake there is open warfare inside National at the moment and that can only now be solved with the top two falling on their swords.
