Let's have a bit of clarification here - NONE of this correspondence was seen by either Gump or Shatter - probably still hasn't been seen by Gump and only glanced at by Shatter while looking at the press "my hands are clean" release
Raises the (interesting?) question of who are the people who actually deal with this stuff?? They are "in the Ministers office" are they public servants? I assume the can is carried by the overpaid adviser, who's role and income are well covered in a thread on here.
Like so much of politics and public life in this country, it stinks.
