The Shining Path according to Dear Leader (Part Rua)
Upon Dear Leader’s return to New Zealand, he has waded into the debacle of classroom sizes and teacher numbers by insisting that National’s policies were sound – and it was only us plebs who didn’t understand the wisdom of their policies.
Dear Leader pronounced, from atop the Mount as he received instruction from Heavenly Father,
” It’s the right policy, but if you don’t have parent support and you can’t get some reasonable buy-in from the sector, then you run the risk of industrial action which undermines the rest of your education system and I think, in the context of a $10 billion spend for what was a $40 million policy, it just wasn’t worth it. “
Then he added,
“But, you know, governments from time to time adjust policies . . . if we never listen to people and never take on board what they’re saying then there is an argument for that as well – and that’s called arrogance.
And I think we’re a lot of things as a government, but we’re not arrogant.”
Does anyone check Key’s gormless utterance before he releases them to the public?!?!
Honestly – “ but we’re not arrogant.”
Pray tell, Dear Leader; if governments from time to time adjust policies and you’re willing to take on board what they’re saying – will you be abandoning state asset sales?
Because as sure as most of the public was opposed to increased classroom sizes and cutting teacher-numbers – a similar number are opposed to asset sales as well.
Or, Dear Leader, will you be arrogant ?
