Jobs for their mates

So John Key was unusually forthcoming to a question this morning – he was very keen to give poor unemployed Kerry Prendergast a job.

Key knows how hard his government has made it to get a job, so he’s eager to help her out.  2300 jobs may have been cut since the civil service was ‘capped’, (including many in the front-line, despite promises), but Key thinks he can squeeze her in.

Civil Service independence? A fair selection practice based on merit for jobs? Or jobs for your mates?

    It’s a fairly obvious jobs for your mates scam being run by the corrupt people in NACT.

    • Joe Bloggs 1.1

      would that be anything like the obvious jobs for your mates scam run by Len Brown when he appointed Penny Hulse as Deputy Mayor…?

      http://www.times.co.nz/cms/news/2010/10/backup_for_mayor.php

      …or is Len’s jobs for your mates scam completely different…?

      No doubt the LWNJs will have a compelling explanation (read: PR spin, anti-right meme, ideological fart) about how the two are different – like, let me guess: Len’s a Leftist, so that makes it OK; Key’s Right so that makes him a satanist, a baby-eater, &c.

      What a load of patronising bullshit your post is, Bunji. Even you can do better than this.

      • Just Thinking 1.1.1

        Golly Joe, here’s a tip Penny Hulse got elected.

      • Bunji 1.1.2

        I’m sorry, Len has to appoint a deputy mayor, someone to stand in for him if he’s out of Auckland or whenever required, and do the extra duties required, as laid down in Rodney’s law. Penny Hulse was “appointed” a councillor by the voters of Waitakere, not Len Brown; he merely chose the best person for the job of deputy mayor from his 20 available options.

        Try and find something that is vaguely comparable.

        • Lanthanide 1.1.2.1

          “Try and find something that is vaguely comparable.”
          I know, I know! Michael Cullen was appointed chairman of NZ Post! Damn those lefties, giving plum jobs to their mates after they lose an election… oh wait.

        • Zaphod Beeblebrox 1.1.2.2

          So you think he should pick Jamie-Lee or Penny Webster? Maybe John Key could make Chris Carter deputy PM!

  2. toad 2

    I wonder if he’ll have a job for David Garrett too, give that Garrett may have difficulty regaining his practising certificate as a barrister and solicitor.

    • roger nome 2.1

      he could work in secret service maybe? Surely there are still spies in NZ that have false passports etc.

      • Spying seems to require a bit of tact (and, if the films are anything to go by, the ability to look good in speedos, Do you really want to see Garrett in speedos?)

        I add fascist attitude plus 70s porn star moustache and I get “police officer” 😀

  3. Bored 3

    I had to laugh at Jonkey saying that they were always looking for people with “talent”…thats Nact speak for ideologically one eyed and ruthless.

    In a period of high unemployment it seems to me Jonkey is saying he can create work for the “right” people but the rest of us can go forth.

    With regard to Kerry perhaps given developers (like husband Rexxy) cant meet their bills and are under the hammer financially the loss of the “second income” (her $150K+) might be a major worry. tiem to call in favours, will anybody buy her a coffee?

    I was sitting in my car outside Parliament yesterday waiting for the better half. When who should I see walking into Parliament grounds with an associate, our late unlamented mayor.

    First, thought, she\’s off to get a job from her tory mates. To be proven right so fast in this case, is NOT gratifying.

    • Bob Stanforth 4.1

      Ah, stupidity masquerading as fact. I can see where you get that from.

      Wrong, fool. She was there for a pre-arranged meeting. 1+1 does not equal right wing conspiracy. Go and check the sky, it isn’t falling.

      • BLiP 4.1.1

        She was there for a pre-arranged meeting pro-forma job interview. 1+1 does not equal right wing conspiracy. Go and check the sky, it isn’t falling.

        Happy to help.

        • Bob Stanforth 4.1.1.1

          So, your fact base is? You do realise that closing your eyes and thinking of mummy isnt a fact base, right?

          • bbfloyd 4.1.1.1.1

            Bob… i,m still waiting to see if you are capable of putting forward coherent arguments that actually make sense five seconds after you write them… been waiting a loooong time now..

            and BTW … drop the eodepus complex jokes, the’re offensive at best..

            • Bob Stanforth 4.1.1.1.1.1

              Oh, I didn’t realise you were so deep! But try Oedipus, more your style I suspect.

              Coherence, round here, seriously? Demands for fact base when the argument doesn’t suit the theme, and none required when it does. Nah, coherence, wasted around here. You go first, please.

              Let me quote the sentence, so you can keep up…

              “First, thought, she\’s off to get a job from her tory mates. To be proven right so fast in this case, is NOT gratifying.”

              Proven. Um, not. Fail. How is that coherent? Why should spurious connectivity rest unchallenged as “fact”, simply because it can reinforce an ideology? If the ideology is that fundamentally flawed, shouldn’t you be worried about the left future, instead of bleating at randoms like me who can pick holes in two minutes flat?

              And before you start, check the record. Which government recognised the obvious talents for the Chair of NZPost? And how many positions did the Government of the left fill with those from the opposition benches during their glorious 9 years? Do tell 🙂

              Like bleating about land sales to Johnny foreigner by the accursed right – and how much land was sold to international buyers during those 9 years?

              Come on then, Ive given you the benefit of the doubt, lets see coherence and reasoned rebuttal. Dare ya. Double dog dare ya.

              • BLiP

                I note that your fact base is your arsehole.

                • Bob Stanforth

                  No, your mother!

                  Well, that’s your intellect stretched for the rest of the year. Have a wee rest now petal.

                  • Doug

                    I admit it was speculation and I may be wrong, but you must admit that Key’s subsequent comment seems to corrobate my speculation.

                    By the way are just brave on the internet or do you go around abusing people in person as well, if so do you get beaten up often?

                    • Bob Stanforth

                      Correct, it was speculation, and you were wrong.

                      As for abuse, it seems the norm around here so Im trying to fit in 🙂

                      Im more than happy to step back from that position when, as noted, I try and engage in meaningful debate and I get slammed for not sourcing every single iota of fact from the Department of really scientific shit. Yes, this site is left leaning, but does that mean that IF a poster likes to debate points, they have to be slammed because they might not be so disposed?

                      As for real life, 6 foot 2, 90 kgs, ultra marathon runner and peacnik who cant stand hypocrisy. Go figure 🙂

                    • Doug

                      I can’t seem to reply to Mr Stanforth below, but he states that it was not a job interview or a similar meeting to sound out job opportunities, but provides no evidence to that effect.

                      This undermines his call for sound debate. Taking an absolute position without supporting evidence is just being contradictory (I feel a Monty Python skit coming on).

                      From your personal information I also conclude that you are good at running away. A sound strategy given your confusion over what a debate comprises.

                      [lprent: There is a depth limit on comments to prevent them squeezing up on the right in little text columns. I think it is about 10 deep?. ]

                    • Bob Stanforth

                      No, I couldnt reply either, site must not like debate anymore 😉

                      The ex Mayor was there – at Parliament – for a pre arranged meeting regarding – go figure – alcohol. Matter of public record. She decided, in consultation with the Minister concerned, to still attend.

                      Doug, more than happy to run with you, if you do. I find a good 100k through the hills makes friends of anyone.

                    • Draco T Bastard

                      No, I couldnt reply either, site must not like debate anymore

                      No, it’s just that you’ve hit the maximum depth of the comments.

    Will the PM offer Prendergast to stand in Epsom? I give her her dues as she did do a fantastic job on the Wellington waterfront. Prendergast may have a future in rail as English stated on Morning report this morning that rail is not economical when used as public transport. That could also have been said (not economical) for proposals on the Wellington water front.

    English’s three strikes are:
    Economic growth is down.
    Consumption tax is down.
    Increase in government spending is down.

    • toad 5.1

      Nope, if the Nats are serious about Epsom they will stand Steven Joyce (currently List) there. The most competent Minister they have (actually, on reflection, the only competent one, which is a pity, because his Transport policy is shit, but unlike the others, he knows how to spin stuff).

  6. Peter Martin 6

    Hmmm…the staunch advocate for the free market that is the National Business Review had, during the Clark years, a column entitled ‘cronywatch’…which apparently noted the political appointments of well…cronies.
    I wonder if they still run that column…

  7. BLiP 7

    And to think Prenderghastly was prattling on about keeping party politics out of local body elections. Whew! Narrow escape, Wellington.

  8. M 8

    ‘English stated on Morning report this morning that rail is not economical when used as public transport.’

    Whaaaat? This guy is a total retard

    • Treetop 8.1

      He also said that it would only be economical if there were towers full of peole to use rail.

      • Vicky32 8.1.1

        And what exactly does he mean by that? I use rail in Wellington (and even in Auckland) out of choice – absolutely!
        Deb

    • ianmac 8.2

      In the same sense that Road transport is not economical. It cant be. Unless every road was tolled. We have forever been subsidising roads by taxing over there and building here. And on the other hand telecommunications has been totally user pays. Go figure!

  9. Doug 9

    See if you had said that first. I would have retracted my observation. Sorry I limit myself to 10K runs any longer and my knees start complaining too many years of ongoing sports injuries.

    • Bob Stanforth 9.1

      Hence why I run in the hills, less strain, and slower pace no one notices.

      But I digress.

      KP will most likely get a job – she is a capable administrator. Just like Mr Rich Bastard himself, appointed to the chair at NZ Post as noted. So basically bunji, stupid post, exposes your lack of knowledge of facts in the real world.

  10. insider 10

    Yeah, Labour would never have given jobs to its recently unemployed Yates, I mean mates.

    anti spam – incomes
