No no no no no, Minister

Ministers reading picture books to schoolteachers.

Ministers blaming horrific youth unemployment on ‘some of them are only looking for paper runs‘.

Ministers deciding that league tables may be useless for schools but are perfect for hospitals.

And Ministers declaring that anyone challenging one of our last true monopolies is a Red under the bed out to destroy our freedoms.

If someone wants to wake me when we get to 2011, I’ll be inside a big bottle of gin.

    After today’s Orewa speech by Phil Goff, I’m joining you.

    At least until I save enough for a one way ticket to Sweden.
