  1. Unbelievable.

    I’m thinking the NZ government can’t sack it’s advisers because it disagrees with their ideas? It can employ people and ban them from publishing anything without permission, but it can’t allow people to publish and then fire them because it doesn’t like their findings? I guess UK advisers are like ministers themselves and can be fired at will.
