Benson-Pope tries to bully Brownlee

The SST has revealed that David Benson-Pope met with Gerry Brownlee and tried to bully (or arguably blackmail) him into stopping National’s attacks on him, threatening to release a letter from a person alleging misconduct by Brownlee while he was a woodwork teacher at Christchurch’s St Bede’s College between 1986 and 1995.

I think think this revelation illustrates perfectly the character of David Benson-Pope – the man placed by Helen Clark to be in charge firstly of our schools and now in charge of the children, youth and families agency.
