More own goals?

July 9, 2008

The last thing the Labour-led Government needs right now is more bad publicity. How then to explain Education Minister Chris Carter’s actions in recent weeks?

Start by pretending that schools are adequately funded for maintenance and operations, when everybody knows that’s not the case, and hasn’t been for years. Tell a group of school heads who complain to “stop moaning and start teaching”. Keep this up until TVNZ — according to the kiwiblog right, another Labour propaganda organ — runs a series on schools where the students have to contend with raw sewage. Only then kick the officials’ butts.
