It’s tough getting a job in the Key economy. There’s 80,000 more people wanting work since Key came to office and 43,000 fewer jobs. Fortunately, there’s always a do-nothing government job going … if you know the right people. Eh, Catherine Isaac? The ACT leader-in-waiting needs an income.
Don’t get distracted around whether Isaac is qualified to oversee the trial of charter schools or not. She’s not. The real question is why would the government need to set up a five person team of political appointees to oversee two trial schools anyway – isn’t that the Ministry of Education’s job?
This whole thing is just about sending some of your money the way of some of the government’s political allies so that they, unlike you, don’t have to get up every morning and do a real job.
