Hekia on Holiday – A week in review

Hekia Parata is away on holiday working like a navvy in Europe at an Education Conference that conveniently happens to be in Amsterdam, followed by a little side trip to Paris, taking along union bosses for a little sharing of the trough in a bid to try to tame them.

Here is her week in review, she started in London:

Then she attended a Commonwealth Day function:

Then she and “her team” whizzed off to Amsterdam:

Two weeks ago the Teacher Unions were trying to have her sacked now they are troughing it up with the Minister in Amsterdam and isn’t Hekia just so proud of her new union mates:

Some good advice at the conference, particularly for Hekia the next time she is under the cosh of Chippie. I’d love to hear the Speaker tell Hekia that it is data that is required from her answer not opinion:

Sucking up to the unions again:

Is Hekia becoming Kate Wilkinson’s replacement for union suck up? More sucking up to the union bosses:

Still sucking up to the unions:

And again, like a union boss would know anything about teacher quality…they are all about mediocrity:

The union sycophancy is becoming tedious. Perhaps she could be called Comrade Hekia now:

Bucket time:

I bet Tex is holding his hands in his head now wishing he hadn’t emboldened fools like Hekia into using Twitter:

And it is off to France, the socialist capital of the world:

One thing is for sure, when those union bosses get back to NZ it won’t matter in the slightest that they supped at the trough of overseas travel with the minister they will be right back at her throat. I doubt it will take even a week before they are issuing press releases calling for their pal Comrade Hekia to be held to account.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
