A hell of a lot of those ‘back office bureaucrats’ that the Nats love to attack have been working their arses off on the Christchurch earthquake. You would think they’d get some respect from their political bosses. You would think wrong. A contributor writes:
Check this quote out from Key:
The Prime Minister said Brownlee had been given the task of overseeing the recovery because he could “knock heads together” and sweep away bureaucratic roadblocks.
I beg your pardon? I believe these ‘bureaucrats” that supposedly needed their heads knocked together had already self-deployed in a superbly orchestrated response on Saturday morning before that fat f*ck had even slid on his grimy Y-fronts.
Always bagging the public service, even when they’re out there risking their lives assessing damaged buildings, dealing with a traumatised public, and in general making Key and Brownlee look good.
