Carter Next Minister with a Scandal
Reports of high level cover-ups at Housing New Zealand will be a headache for Minister Chris Carter.
Apparently senior management has mis-represented progress with budgets and rearranged payments to different accounting periods. See here.
This smells of a Government agency desperately trying to satisfy their Minister - without the resources needed. Given no individual profited - second thoughts - may be it meant they made their performance targets/bonus.
Carter should spend more time in Wellington working with his agencies not roaming around saving sharks and snails and hanging with his buddy.
