It just gets worse and worse for the Nats as Jami-Lee Ross sets the agenda for the long weekend.
What we’ve learned in the last few minutes is that Ross has had an affair with another MP. He has told Newstalk ZB who that person is, however in a rare show of good taste, the station has refused to release the name. I suspect they wouldn’t have been so caring if we were talking about Labour MP’s.
Ross has also changed his mind about resigning. That will allow the rogue Tory to torment his former colleagues from the safety of the House. So no Botany by-election, no choppering in a National Party white knight. This isn’t so much waka jumping as scuppering the entire fleet with all hands on board.
Ross has also released a second recording of a conversation with Simon Bridges. In this one, Simon, a proven lawyer, denies Ross natural justice regarding the allegations of harassment.
It seems clear that Jami-Lee Ross is going to let this one run and run.
Frankly, this is exactly what National, the nasty party, the party of Dirty Politics, totally deserves.
