One News has just reported that Tariana Turia left the Labour Caucus meeting at Premier House after only 45 minutes and in the PMs car.
Also that Richard Prebble is calling a press conference this afternoon regarding his leadership.
Highly likely that Turia has been told by Clark, she is being sacked. Less likely that Prebble is standing down.
Turia certainly pulls nu punches. At a time when some may be looking for compromise, she said, in response to asking if she will resign as a Minister “I haven’t done anything wrong, and usually people resign because they’ve done something wrong. They have either been drunk-driving or not quite told the truth in a way that the public would expect.”
I am sure Ruth Dyson and Lianne Dalziel appreciated that!
