    As I said, you guys would have had field day if he had done it. "whats he trying to hide" etc

    The person to call off anything is the person who set it up in the first place. Not difficult JT.

    Comment: Timing of MP's departure raises questions

    "Jami-Lee Ross is among a handful of National MPs who have been quietly suspected as a potential leaker among colleagues for some time."

    Interesting conjectures from the Spinoff

    The next few weeks may decide the fate of Simon Bridges


    "There’s no pressing need for his caucus to roll their leader; the party’s overall poll numbers are, reportedly, stable. But didn’t Paula Bennett do surprisingly well in that press conference? Judith Collins has been getting good cut-through: maybe she’d win votes with all these culture-war issues? Or, what if National parachuted some high-profile CEO into Parliament via a by-election in the safe seat of soon-to-be-former Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross and they became the next John Key? So many intriguing options for National’s caucus and strategists!"

    No surprises Jamie Lee Ross is the leaker.
    Anyone got a twitter account as jamie is talking there.

    Jamie Lee is denying its him.Says bridges muzzled him from speaking..
    Wonder who the new leaker is, about Bridges donations?
    Whoah just heard Jamie less is accusing bridges of illegal activities and all will be known soon.

    Looks like Jamie Lee is in a hole and digging it deeper. (no twitter here - bad enough copping flak on a ST forum)

    Edit - nut look like you can get a feed here: https://twitter.com/jamileeross/stat...22391523110912)

    Also looks like Jamie has leaked the donations issue and forced Bridges hand.Messy.

    Just read his Twitter comments.Obviously a sick and unstable man is Jamie Ross. National should permanently relief him of his duties and advice him to seek the professional help he so obviously needs ! Maybe even give Curran a call for some tips.

    "This evidence led Simon to push me out on medical leave a few weeks ago. It was essentially an attempt to stop me from speaking publicly. "I now have a duty to speak publicly on these matters. I will do so in coming days."

    "
    When I started to become expendable, I confronted him with evidence that I had recorded him discussing with me unlawful activity that he was involved in. Working on his instruction, he asked me to do things with election donations that broke the law."

    Jeepers - sounds like he has come off medication.

    Innocent until proven guilty. There is no proof of guilt, the PWC report was inconclusive, but didn't stop them pointing the finger at JLR. Then the QC backs the pointed finger, so Bridges shoots from the hip. Anyway you look at it the whole saga should never have got legs, it's so minor, however Bridges has made a complete hash of it and still it's not over with JLR promising more revelations later this week. Bridges must go.

    Its not a criminal court investigation. Its an inquiry. From the PWC report
    "“42 b) the evidence we have identified points to Mr Ross.
    43. Mr Ross may therefore be the text message sender”

    Twitter is so cool ....when I followed Jamie-Lee it came up and suggested I follow Phil Twyford as well

    Maybe Phil and Jamie-Lee are in this together

    The 21st century doesn't seem to agree with the National Party.

    What would Sid Holland think? Keith Holyoake? Jack Marshall? Sir Robert Muldoon? Jim Bolger?

    From Aaron Gilmore to the complete flake that took over from Mister English in his electorate and now this.

    It's just embarrassing.

    This isn't an embarrassment. Its a very real concern that the person has mental health issues - so worrying the police and Speaker essentially didnt want to push the person over the edge.

    Gilmore was a twit, no doubt about it - but this is at a totally different level.
