NZH: Time for Hawkins to perf

Jonathan Milne in the Sunday Herald writes that it is time for George Hawkins to perf, and leave the job. He notes that Hawkins dumps on the police time after time, and refuses to take any responsibility himself.

On Saturday the NZ Herald editorial called for Commissioner Rob Robinson to clean up, and then leave.

I feel somewhat sorry for the Commissioner. He was highly regarded in his previous roles, and handled the investigation into then Commissioner Doone with great integrity. I think under a different Minister he might have been judged less harshly, as this Minister has left him to front up on every issue, rather than share responsibility on issues such as resourcing and policy.
