'El Jefe' Field Report Delayed Further
News today that the Beehive (Floor 9) confirms the Ingram Report into the extra-ministerial and property development activities of the Labour Member for Mangere and former Labour Minister is delayed at least a month will surprise no-one.
This is standard issue for Helen Clark and her Government. The model (being faithfully followed) is: Promise an quick and fulsome report. Delay, delay, delay - release at an appropriate moment behind a smokescreen of something else.
The longer this goes on the more likely it is that Field is a gone-burger. Clark is waiting to find a good time to execute him. This will bring her mate Charles Chauvel to the House. A dandy if ever I saw one.
