The media are now running Labour’s attack lines for them especially that Christine Rankin’s appointment was wantonly partisan and therefore a despicable act by a deeply corrupt government or something like that.
Clare Trevett is clearly not a student of history. If she was then she would have noted that the first Families Commissioner was none other than Rajen Prasad. (She won’t be getting the top shelf stuff in teh blogmobile for sure.)
You know the same Rajen Prasad who is;
A career academic, Prasad was appointed by his mates in the Labour Party and proceeded to dump on the National Party from the position. Then he ditched his six figure salary for a high ranking on the Labour Party list and a seat in Parliament.
Now what is curious is that the media don’t or won’t look at these things and that Labour has all of a sudden a case of forgetfulness around their own political appointments.
