Resignation, No. 1 [update 2]
So if Phil Heatley has resigned for being caught using the taxpayer as his family’s personal ATM Machine, what’s keeping Sir Double Dipton, aka Bill English, in office?
UPDATE 2: Richard McGrath argues the Heatley’s self-immolation means “the long wait was over for a National Party MP to act in accordance with commonly accepted principles of honesty and responsibility.”
“Perhaps now that Mr Heatley has demonstrated a shred of decency, Bill English may wish to reconsider whether he should have at least offered to resign, after taking a thousand dollars a week from the taxpayer to fund his million dollar home in Karori - with his wife already earning a comfortable income as a doctor.”
“The Libertarianz Party commends Mr Heatley. He has raised the bar for his cabinet colleagues. . . ”
