Missing in action

Where's Murray McCully? As one of our government's most important Ministers, you'd think the Prime Minister would know. But apparently not:

"I have absolutely no clue where he is, being the foreign minister he travels all the time and I haven't had a need to speak to him in the last few days," he told Newstalk ZB.
Is he in Washington receiving his latest orders? On a secret peace mission to Syria? Sulking alone in his room? Key just doesn't know (or, apparently, care). Which is no way to run a government. But one place McCully definitely isn't is here, being accountable to us for his decisions and mistakes. Which is no way to run a democracy.
