    He strikes me as a decent guy. I imagine that once cleared John Key will welcome him back into Cabinet perhaps with a minor portfolio or even just as a minister out of cabinet

    Wait until the Labour era troughers are outed. I’d say they will make Phil ‘Vino’ Heatley look like an amateur. Chris Carter has accident waiting to happen all across his entitled face, alongside Shane Jones (while we are talking about entitled), and where do we end the list on the red side?

    I agree with biomag. Remember Ruth Dyson fell on her sword over drink driving. She spent some time in the wilderness and was then reinstated. I don’t think Heatley’s offence warrants total expulsion.

    I think he should be up before a Judge for stealing off his employers (you know the tax payers). Thats what would happen in the private sector.

    I’m not even certain that politicians are legally considered our employees, more likely asylum inmates.

    I don’t recall many private sector employers that prosecute managers receiving $200,000+ salaries for plastic abuse, so I assume that such managers don’t fiddle their plastic accounts.

    I do recall a few private sector companies prosecuting lower paid ex-employees for theft as a servant, probably to try and ensure dismissal couldn’t be contested via a PG.

    We must be a country full of honest private sector managers, with a few dishonest lower paid workers. Yeah, Right.

    John Key’s idea was to raise standards for the behaviour of MPs.
    Heatley was plainly a serial offender. More than three strikes it appears. He’s out and should stay out.

    I agree with Lutzie.

    Heatley has been caught with his hands in the till.

    Petty theft is still theft and says a lot about his character and integrity. Falling on his sword just shows he has found his integrity a little too late.

    Blunt clearly didn’t get the memo: It’s not really troughing when a blue-eyed NACTional boy does it.

    As per apologist/sycophant comments above.

    “He strikes me as a decent guy.”

    He could even win a “Mr. Personality” contest, but that does not matter. Heatley failed miserably the intelligence test by using the incorrrect credit card. He resigned as he should. No ifs or buts, he had to go.

    If you think otherwise, try the same trick next time you’re on a business trip. Your sacking will be fortright (and correct).

    I think employee thieving in this country is far, far bigger than employers like to believe.

    New Zealand is ranked the 8th worst country for employee fraud out of 54 countries surveyed – check out the horror stories here: http://www.verify.co.nz/news-theftnz.php
