On the Collins reinstatement….

“Mr Key has used quite a bit of his own political capital in bringing Mrs Collins back.

The question is whether Mrs Collins herself realises this. Certainly comments from her this morning, that her year away from cabinet responsibilities has given her more confidence, will not strike her colleagues as being quite the lesson she had to learn from her 14-month demotion to the backbenches.”
