Another Good Sledge from Chippie

Chippie is just doing what happened at the end of the last National Government when Labour smashed up National for golden handshakes. A simple and effective play from the best Labour Opposition MP.

From an article by Paul Harper and embedded journalist Kate Shuttleworth:

Labour’s Education spokesperson Chris Hipkins says Longstone’s golden handshake is “outrageous”.

“The Government claims the relationship between Lesley Longstone and Hekia Parata had broken down. Well, $425,000 dollars would have paid for a hell of a lot of relationship counselling.” 

Mr Hipkins said this was a “convenient cover story”.

“In reality, Lesley Longstone took the fall for Hekia Parata’s incompetence, and National’s unpopular policies. Taxpayers are paying a hefty price, just so that National has someone else to blame for the Government’s stuff-ups in education.

Luckily for National the rest of Labour are useless and cant deliver a hit.
