The Thin Skin of Darin King

Cabinet minister Darin King has a hard time dealing with criticism.  Time and again, he has responded to dissent against his authority with suspensions, censorship, funding cuts and other abuses of power.  I'm not sure if this is a misguided PR strategy, an authoritarian ideology, a Napoleon complex or an just an over-inflated ego at work, but his behaviour is an affront to democratic society and he needs to be called out for it.

In that spirit, here are some examples of Darin King abusing power or just generally acting like a dick.

This is just what I could think of off the top of my head; if you think of any other good examples leave a link in the comments and I'll add it to the list.

It seems that the Justice Minister is giving in to pressure and will reassess the recent justice cuts.

An informative column outlining the state of the justice system and the effect the cuts would have.
