Judith Collins has been returned to Cabinet. Below is an extract from Chapter 4 of Dirty Politics, to remind the public of her behaviour when she was last in office.
Collins was shown to have leaked a stream of information to Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater. The most notable example was her leaking the private details of a public servant, who faced death threats and public humiliation after this information was published by Slater.
Collins has yet to be cleared of any of the misdeeds revealed in the book.
