Curran resigns

Clare Curran has resigned as a Minister just hours after the PM was backing her.

It seems to be a genuine decision on her part, rather than Ardern sacking her. I guess she just decided that she was too politically damaged to be effective in her portfolios.

A tough day for Clare. As I blogged earlier today, she is a good person who is passionate about ICT/Comms and worked hard to make a difference. But her judgement did let her down repeatedly.

Kris Faafoi picks up Broadcasting and ICT which is sensible. Has been a good Minister to date.

However he remains outside Cabinet. I guess they are waiting to see if Whaitiri is sacked before doing a wider reshuffle.
