Will post on Wilson business at some stage, on the failures of the Chief Justice and especially the current A-G.
Speaking in the urgent debate on the issue I made an aside in which I drew attention to the UK constitutional arrangements whereby the Attorney General is not a Cabinet Minister. And the fact that for a short time in recent history that was the case in New Zealand. I was suggesting there might be some advantage in that approach when I saw the look on Charles Chauvel’s face. Talk about dirty.
Nothing wrong with having ambition. Charles certainly wants to be A-G and a Cabinet Minister and both at the same time.
And the chances are that he will be at the end of next year.
