Ministry of Magic and the Wizard's Council

Enquiry at the Ministry of Magic

"Weasley has brought the Ministry into disrepute. He is clearly unfit to draw up our laws and his ridiculous Muggle Protection Act should be scrapped immediately."
-- Lucius Malfoy in the Daily Prophet (CS12)

Commentary

Notes

The article quotes Lucius Malfoy - as a governor of the school - and says that he has called for Arthur's resignation. Draco finds the article hilarious. Ron (who is worried for his father) and Harry don't think so, in spite of being in disguise as Draco's friends Crabbe and Goyle, and this almost causes trouble (CS12).
