Sources in Wellington are saying that John Key is looking at another reshuffle to remove ministers who have dropped the ball repeatedly.
His words of encouragement to Hekia Parata after his last re-shuffle may no longer hold true.
Hekia has been responisble for far too many screw ups that have caused bad press for National.
She has lost a case to Mai Chen about closing a special school in Nelson. She has been fisted by the teachers unions and parents in Christchurch over closing schools, and she embarrassingly had to use taxpayers money to pay out her departmental head.
She has lost more staff than can be counted because of her unpleasant manner, and if hush money hadn’t been paid some of the stories would have been horrific.
Caring about maori students is one thing. Tanking National’s vote is another.
There are other ministers who are apparently in line for the chop and I am attempting to clarify details.
