Police Minister Stuart Nash has hit out at police leading the operation following the White Island eruption.He calls for more “transparency and openness” in operation.
In the past when any thing came up about things not going right in our useless top brass at police HG, the standard response from the minister was “It’s an operational matter” and I cannot comment.
Now we have the minister taking the lead and saying he want”s Timms removed and replaced with Clement. Do we take Cindies advice and “read between the lines” here?
Clement has been told by the minister to stop ignoring the advice of local pilot Mark Law who has extensive knowledge of flying in the area. Law believes he could have recovered the bodies by now, and will join the team of police planning the recovery operation.
When asked by Newshub if the minister had lost confidence in police he said he hadn’t.
