Interesting. The Nats would usually prefer to handle this sort of conflict behind behind closed doors:
MP attacks own minister over transport spat
Maurice Williamson has attacked his own minister over a transport spat he compared to a “nuclear explosion”.
The Pakuranga MP told Transport Minister Simon Bridges his constituents were livid about setbacks to the AMETI (Auckland Manukau Transport Initiative) projects.
He said the New Zealand Transport Agency and Auckland Transport had a “dysfunctional” relationship where “one hand doesn’t seem to know what the other is doing.”
Strong words from Williamson. Looks like discipline is breaking down in the National party.
