The Shining Path according to Dear Leader (Part Toru)

With infinite largesse, Dear Leader has  consented to answering questions from the Great Unwashed Masses,

Not one to pass up an opportunity to reaffirm my fealty and unswerving obedience to Beloved Dear Leader, this blogger has fired off a quick email to Stuff.co.nz with questions as to why we are so lucky to be gifted his Enlightened and Benevolent  Leadership.

Well, kinda.

The actual email, posing two questions which I believe merit an honest (*snort!*) response from John Key,

Subject:  Questions for the Prime Minister

I have two questions for the Prime Minister;

1. On 11 June, in response to your backdown on increasing classroom sizes, you said;

    “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.”

If you are prepared to listen to public opposition to increasing classroom sizes, and call that “adjusting policies” – why are you remaining stubborn in the face of public opposition to the part-sale of state owned assets. By ignoring public opinion on this contentious issue, how can you say “but we’re not arrogant”?

2. Why will you not fund life-saving medication for sufferers of Pompe’s disease, as you promised  to fully-fund herceptin treatment for breast cancer sufferers in 2008 during the election campaign? Pompe’s disease is just as terminal as breast cancer. Why the discrimination saving some lives and not others?

Dunno why I bothered, really. I think we all know what we’re going to get in response,
