WB would like to know who is paying Mr Peter Williams QC legal bills....is it the taxpayer? WB understands that if you are a Minister (as Winston Peters still is) then your legal bills are being paid by the Crown in other words the taxpayer.
WB would suggest that the cosy 'setting aside of ministerial responsibility" means in effect that the we are all financially supporting a suppurating ex Minister of Foreign Affairs involved in legal actions that do not relate to Ministerial Responsibility.
So much for Helen Clark's annoucement on becoming Prime Minister that we will ensure high standards in public office
