Parker Must Hate Clark (but he'll hate his Dunedin colleague more)
Interesting isn't it. Clark coulda, woulda, shoulda, sacked David Benson-Pope on several occasions. At any time, for his unconscionable lying in the House. As we all know she didn't. In fact she turned on his accusers.
Roll forward a week or three and David Parker has to go - I think he deserves all he got - but in any event all political capital had been expended on the scoundrel Benson-Pope and none was left for Parker. If you had a choice of the two - Benson-Pope wouldn't make the list.
Clark has done a massive disservice to her colleagues and crucified the wrong man through acts of omission and commission.
