The buck never stops here

King Gerry 1 of Christchurch is surrounded by imbeciles:

A humiliated Gerry Brownlee has apologised to Labour MPs he sledged over their workrate on behalf of earthquake victims and says he feels let down by EQC.

The thing is, O Mighty One, the NZ government made you absolute dictator of Christchurch, with unlimited authority to do what you saw fit.  A cabinet minister can be let down by their officials, but an absolute ruler gets absolute responsibility.  Suck it up, milord.

PM ... fair call but equally, Brownlie has the right to expect to receive accurate and quality advice from EQC.

Ah so it's all the underlings fault.
Mind you we have a Minister for oversight of SOE's including Solid Energy.
