UNITEC battles on

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Despite Justice Forrest Miller, in the High Court at Wellington last month, ruling that the Government had acted unlawfully in its handling of Unitec’s application, Mallard continues to show complete partiality toward UNITEC.

It is a travesty that even though the Government has found to have acted unlawfully in almost every aspect of the handling of UNITEC’s application to be a university that;
a)Mallard still holds his position as Minister
b)UNITEC cannot have it application reviewed by an impartial authority
c)Mallard still holds his position as Minister

The judge said at the time that the Government had breached;

  • The Bill of Rights Act, 1688;
  • The New Zealand Bill of Rights Act, 1990; and
  • The rules of natural justice.

He also lined up the Minister of Smarm for special attention. Now Bully-boy Mallard is sticky up for Smarmy Maharey.

The Chief executive Dr John Webster has said he owed it to students, staff and stakeholders to ensure that their hard work “isn’t simply dismissed out of hand by a minister who seems intent on ignoring the facts – that we are a university of technology in all but name, and deserve official recognition for that”.

And of course that the Government BROKE THE LAW.
