Shameless NZEI/Labour fail again

Phil Goff colluding with the NZEIHow many turned up for the NZEI’s “big” protest in Auckland yesterday? Just a couple of hundred of the usual snarling nasties.

So far so normal. But the interesting part was the breathtaking cheek of Phil Goff turning up and accepting their petition.

Do these clowns think our memories have been erased?

Just a couple of weeks ago I outed NZEI and Labour as colluding over a previous petition – with the personal details of thousands ending up on Labour’s database without their permission.

So then up pops Goff again yesterday to put even more personal information in his back pocket. Labour flunkies will be busy harvesting the emails as we speak. The union has betrayed their workers yet again, this time instead of handing over 18,000 peoples personal details to labour they have handed over 60,000.

Labour has so few friends it has to do exactly as the rabid teachers’ union says – such as committing an extra half a billion dollars a year of our money just to bolster the NZEI coffers and get their vote.

I don’t think so Phil.

As for NZEI – when I busted them for giving info to Labour they sent out a letter claiming they were apolitical. The sight of Goff in one of their smelly green protest t-shirts yesterday tells the full story.

    Bust the teacher unions. ###NOW###.

  • Yep. They need to be Chris Christie’d, ASAP.

    Come November, Cactus Kate should be made Minister of Education with clear instructions to dismantle this edifice of treason and sedition.

    Hey Cam, do you have a copy of the latest petition and did it have anything on it about their personal details being given to the Labour Party?

    • Doc

      I think I have found the right one:

      ECE Cuts Don’t Heal

      To the House of Representatives
      We respectfully request that the House of Representatives urge the Government to reverse the cuts to early childhood education funding, and commit to a plan to invest 1 per cent of GDP on early childhood education as recommended by UNICEF.

      [Bit of blurb]

      [Asks for Name, address and e-mail]

      Please return this petition to: Stephanie Mills, NZEI Te Riu Roa, PO Box 466 Wellington, or by fax to 04 385 1772 by 20 May 2011.

    Ol` Phil”pants on fire”Goff,his lies are his reality.
    The truth ,to him,is what ever he says it is ,at that time.

    I suppose Minto was there screaming his guts out into a megaphone. Bradford would have had to be into it a well foaming from the mouth. Same old, same old.

    Interesting that the petition mentions a recommendation by UNICEF. I will now mention my utter hatred of the UN – it is one of the most ***loathsome*** groups to have ever infested the planet.
    Among its recent nasty deeds is a resolution that it passed which condemned what they call “defamation of religion”.
    ( What WE call ***criticism*** of religion. ). Here is the link –
    Here are the countries which voted for that (shame on them) and against. I’m pleased to say that New Zealand voted *against* this resolution –
    Vote on Combating Defamation of Religions
    The draft resolution on combating defamation of religions (document A/C.3/64/L.27) was approved by a recorded vote of 81 in favour to 55 against, with 43 abstentions, as follows:

    In favour: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Comoros, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Cuba, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Russian Federation, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Suriname, Swaziland, Syria, Tajikistan, Thailand, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Viet Nam, Yemen, Zimbabwe.

    Wonder how were parents who were not also teachers or union activists.

    Key should campaign on outlawing union participation in the political process. Especially state-funded unions like this and the PSA. It’s disgraceful that any union let alone those state-funded ones in particular , are allowed legally to come down on either side of the politics and support any party regardless of who they are.

    Unions, apparently, deal with workers. This is what they do, apparently.

    They are NOT political parties and should NOT therefore be allowed at all in any way to contribute time or money toward promoting anything except their workers employment situations. Period.

    The political climate is very right for such a bold move and if Key did it he would permanently end Liarbore’s key source of support and feet on the ground. It’s a very saleable policy, in this particular election. We may not have another opportunity to bite this particular cherry, ever and we should therefore take a gamble now, when we can.

    In case any lefties read this, the FACT that Liarbore gets hammered is not the point, that’s incidental. The point is, no party should have support from a union, ever. A union is a commercial not a political organisation. They need to stay out of politics for there is no constitutional argument for their inclusion. To the contrary there is a constitutional argument for their exclusion, and that’s how I’m suggesting the policy should be framed, cause it’s about justice, and the children. Won’t someone, anyone think of the children?

    • thor42

      Agreed. The Nats would get a *shitload* of votes if they did this. Unfortunately, I don’t think Key has the *balls* to do it.

      • reid

        Yes I’d be very surprised if he did it.
