Labours bribe seen as plug for Brain Drain

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Labour has moved to plug the brain drain with its pledge to wipe interest from the student loans of those who choose to live in New Zealand, says Stuff.

Mrs Peter Davis said “This will help to retain the highly skilled and well-educated pool of young Kiwis which our country needs to continue to grow and prosper,”

But wait, Is this the same Mrs Peter Davis that mounted a vitriolic attack on Richard Poole, the organiser of a campaign to highlight the brain drain several years ago?

Is this the same Mrs Peter Davis that said there was no evidence of a brain drain?

Well, What is it Mrs Peter Davis? Brain Drain? or Not a Brain Drain?

If it is a brain drain can Richard Poole expect an apology?
