The story is not with online media yet, but Don Brash has relieved Brian Connell of his portfolio responsibilities, following a series of “destructive and ill-disciplined comments”. He will also be left unranked in the National Party Caucus line-up.
In a very ominous statement, Brash has said “Clearly Mr Connell, who has said that his National Party membership is irrelevant when he conducts his duties and forms his views, is unable to continue to represent National Party policy. He no longer has my confidence or that of the president”.
Well Tony Milne demanded Don take action, May be the first time he has succeeded with such a demand 🙂
