- That wannabe Crusher Collins. Can’t crush a car. Can’t save money on double-bunking. Tried to do it cheap. Now the bunks need $2.6m repairs. She reminds me of this bully at primary school. Seemed big, impressive, scary. Until we learned he couldn’t tie his shoelaces. Then he just looked like an angry idiot.
- Private Public Partnerships don’t add up. $6m to set up PPPs for building schools. Then cross our fingers for 30 years and make $800K. Maybe. Tolley’s still keen but we know she can’t add.
- Frontline teachers can’t get a pay rise to match inflation. But that loser Bennett can fork out thousands for the Children’s Commissioner to commute to Wellington by air. And that preener Ryall is doing the same for an appointed DHB member living in Townsville.
- A scientist is made Kiwi of the Year. Cool. Key rebrands MRST and FRST as the Science and Innovation Ministry, and cuts $3 million in funding. Not cool. But since when did we need to know science? Let’s just get rich trading money.
