Letter to the editor – A “clayton’s” government?

National’s track record thus far… Key has out-sourced his ministerial responsibilities as Minister in Charge of the SIS and GCSB…

His government tried outsourcing paying teachers to an Aussie company (but that crashed and burned in a spectacular stuff-up)…

He’s now planning to outsource state  housing to charities – a policy that will not add one single extra house for those most in need.

And when things go wrong, Key’s earnest response is it was never his responsibility and instead shifts the blame onto his Prime Minister’s Department, or that he wasn’t acting as the PM at the time.

So much for taking responsibility, which I thought was a central tenet for his party’s beliefs.

One has to wonder what we’re paying him and his cronies for? To appear on Breakfast TV for tame “interviews”? Photo-ops with kittens, puppies, and kiddies?

At least kittens, puppies, and kiddies have a useful function.
