Good riddance

Meka Whaitiri has been sacked as a Minister for bullying her staff. Good riddance - there should be no place for bullies in cabinet. But there shouldn't be any place for them in the House either. While the Prime Minister cannot sack an MP, the Labour Party can throw people out. And given that all witnesses agree that Whaitiri "got physical" while yelling at her staff member, that's exactly what a party which purports to believe in workers' rights should do.
