Richard Butler, Act II

Now it's not "resignation" but "termination. Either way, Tasmanians are glad to get rid of former UN weapons inspector Richard Butler, but they do not they want to hand over the $650,000 payout their government so generously granted.

Buh. Bye. Again.

UPDATE: August 22nd. Butler is paying for his wedding. Ten months late.
It's $10,000. They're deducting it from the $650,000 they had to pay him to go away for stuff like this.
"Mr Butler's decision to marry at Government House, then take three weeks leave in advance to have a honeymoon, one day after being sworn in raised eyebrows in Tasmania."
