LATEST: The New Plymouth District Council monitoring committee has ruled Sherril George has breached the council's code of conduct over what Mayor Harry Duynhoven described as an attack on a senior manager.

The committee has recommended the full council censure Ms George and remove her from four council roles, including a seat on its policy committee.

The renegade councillor was not present at the hearing and had indicated she did not wish to attend and didn't wish to make a statement.

The committee found Ms George's letter to the Taranaki Daily News last week, saying a ''short person with a big ego'' was the common thread in three senior management resignations at the council, had breached the code.

Will Aaron Cruden's omission hurt or help the All Blacks?

Hurt - he needs as much game time as possible.

Help - finally Beauden Barrett will get a proper run.

Hmmm - no biggie, just a temporary hitch.

Who is Cruden? I support the All Whites.
