Pansy Wong has been stood down resigned over her abuse of her ministerial status and perks for her husband’s private business dealings. I expected that Key act ‘relaxed’ and hope for this blow over. That he hasn’t indicates they’ve uncovered something more.
Stuff reports: “It is understood the investigation by Key’s office brought to light fresh information about Wong’s travel.”Will we find out what it is, or will Key pull another Richard Worth on us?
Updates will come, Key is speaking in Japan on the matter.
It looks like Pete Hodgson and Labour have been completely vindicated. He also handled the timing of this very well. Rumours about Wong’s travels have been circulating since last year but they were never going to get a fair hearing during the government’s honeymoon period.
Questions will have to be asked about how the Minister of Spider Petting lazy attitude to managing the government lets this corruption go on until the evidence is brought to the public by the Opposition.
I have to say I can’t think of anyone who will be sad to see the back of Wong as a minister. She was completely useless and a disgrace both in Parliament and as an advocate for women.
