The Brain Drain continues

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

I have blogged this before and I now think someone at the Herald must have been reading.

Back in 2000 Richard Poole highlighted the “Brain Drain” and was promptly vilified and castigated by a snippy and viscious government who at the time branded it as a Round Table beat up.

Richard comments on the governments so-called initiative to woo back ex-pats in the Herals this morning.

“He is glad Helen Clark is still talking about the ex-pats. But he says it is still just that – talk. “

and he goes on to say that ex-pats are saying to him that they “are adamant it’s not the right environment to come back to, and that’s a shame”

“The solutions they wanted were better support for start-up businesses, a tax revamp and more investment in tertiary education. “

I wonder now if Mrs Peter Davis has the grace to apologise to Richard now, after allowing the situation to continue unabated for 5 more years. Yeah right
