Good Work Crusher Someone Had To Do It

  Richard Harman on his Politik site reports with surprise that Judith Collins might have kneecapped Nick Smith and inferring now this is somehow a scandal. Who cares if she did?

The question was when? Oh dear. How about at least before the last list was drawn up. Nick Smith's greatest achievement in politics will be a serious dialogue commencing about term limits.  Chris Finlayson on and Max Bradford kicked that off today.
