[wp-hackers] remove WP news from dashboard v3.8

I’m updating my plugin for v3.8 and everything is going nicely except I cannot remove the ‘WordPress news’ dashboard panel.

Currently I can use variations of:
remove_meta_box('dash-right-now', 'dashboard', 'core')
remove_action('welcome_panel', 'wp_welcome_panel’)

But these now don’t work
I understand this element is now ‘dashboard_primary’ so I tried variations on a theme of:
remove_action('dashboard_primary', 'wp_dashboard_primary’) etc

but I’m obviously missing something as it still displays itself proudly.

Any ideas?
