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. “

See:  Key: We were right, despite U-turn

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.”

*splutter*cough*cough*splutter*

Does anyone check Key’s gormless utterance before he releases them to the public?!?!

Honestly – “ but we’re not arrogant.”

Oh reallly?!?!

Not arrogrant?

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 ?

    I wonder if Key failed Science at school?
    And woodwork?
