  2. Looking forward to reading this rat story from tolley – she’s not subtle that’s for sure

    • Tigger 3.1

      Tolley also stuffed up yesterday by sending out the presser on the death of Aorangi School before the staff were informed. They heard about it from One News. She’s a goner. Or should be if the government was being managed effectively.

        Are there any women on National’s team that can be respected as being more than fussy housekeepers tidying up and smoothing out kinks, no real understanding of the political role or depth of understanding.

      marty – I have a post coming up about this after lunch…

      I can feel a sequel on the way: Riley the Rat, then Tolley the Toad, or The Day Tolley Fell Off Her Trolley

  3. The education unions traditionally move at glacial pace but are well committed when they finally do, which minister ‘ratty’ Tolley will discover.

    • PT 4.1

      Troll doll tolley is the most disrepected person anyone in education has ever found. She deserves to go – to close a school academics in chch have hailed as a hot bed of innovaton that should be used an example of best practice for all schools is just strange – and short sighted. I bet that idiot Brownlie is out to do a deal with someone (maybe the big rest homes in the area – I hear they dont have a hospital and the school site of 4.5 hec would be just perfect) – would not be surprised if there is already a back room deal done. From what I have heard, hes been the least helpful of all – actually, it was him I believe that suggested the school should close way back a year ago – sounds fishy to me.
      As for the unions and principals feds – too right they will go for it – just watch and see. English (because you can make a safe bet hes behind this) and Trolley better make sure they have their backs covered.

  4. Ianmac from Abu Dhabi 7

    I see Borak Obama will be going to Copenhagen but poor old John will miss him in spite of the efforts of Greenpeace.

      captcha interesting –
      Ianmac has called in from Abu Dhabi. The captcha is on the spot. It appears that Greenpeace was trying out as matchmaker with John Key and Borak Obama.
