Fresh from having the remains of his man card shredded Cactus Kate spanks Farrar for his flip flop holiday brain fade posts about Key’s re-shuffle:
Not even the most one-eyed National Party supporter in the world with that eye glued closed, could call the demotion of Heatley and Wilkinson anything but a sacking.
Oh for heavens sake David.¬†Call a spade a bloody spade. ¬† ¬†Their departures are out and out sackings. ¬†This is big girl and boy stuff, there is no rest or rotation policy. ¬†Out.
Big thanks? ¬†For what can we ask? ¬†Doing a job they are paid to do and not being good enough to keep it? ¬†Thanks for taking one for the team up the chook?¬†
If an employee is in senior management and permanently no longer invited to the senior management meetings , they have been sacked. ¬†They feel like they have been sacked. ¬†They are not out celebrating with those replacing them or their new gold watch. ¬†They swear and curse and want to know why they have received a $118,000 drop in salary.
Only in the weirdest handwringing sort of euphemistic PR HR speak would anyone call it actual “rejuvenation”.
Dead right…and she is right about Hopeless Hekia too:
At first I thought Key was a big girls blouse for not sacking Parata but after listening to his presser have a different conclusion.Parata has not been sacked by John Key for poor performance for three reasons:¬†a) she is Maori, and;b) a woman, and most importantly;c) a Maori woman with a¬†powerful, Knighted cancer-surviving Maori husband.This makes her more than three (hundred) times as hard to sack by a rich white man in a greasy suit without making him look like a bully. ¬†Even if Parata herself is a notorious bully with a terrible record of staff management.Had he sacked Parata, all those lefties calling now for him to sack her would have called him that.
