How thick are teachers?

Well the answer is pretty obvious even to a failing NCEA student, or someone that doesn’t pass national standards.

Despite the alleged political clout of the teachers union they are as thick as pig sh*t. Any sensible teachers organisation would have worked out that Anne Tolley holds a marginal seat, is a carpet bagger so has no deep connection to the electorate, and as a senior cabinet minister is going to have no time in her electorate to mount even a modest campaign.

This means the East Coast is up for grabs, and a well resourced, well supported Labour candidate in the East Coast will see Anne lose her seat. Sure she will become a scum list MP (again) but it will be hugely embarrassing for her and almost certainly see her replaced as education minister.

The real problem for the teachers unions wanting to win the East Coast for Labour is they are going to have to get a decent candidate. Moana “the shark” Mackey is so useless she makes Katrina Shanks seem slightly competent. So they have to stick a big knife into Moana and get someone good to run for them there.

A WOBH tip for the teachers unions – being a teacher, poofter, maori etc is nice but won’t win votes. Get some good quality local regardless of whether they teach, are into man on man love or are indigenous.
