Labour Education Spokeman Chris Hipkins posts a fake quotation about education

I hope Shearer cuts off Chris Hipkins internet access in case he thinks he might send a few thousand dollars in advance fees to get millions from the coffers of  his dead Nigerian relative as it appears Hipkins thinks everything on the internet is true.

If Einstein made this inspiring quote it would have been included in the comprehensive collection of quotations “The Ultimate Quotable Einstein” from Princeton University Press, but it’s not there.


It appears to be no evidence of the quote attributed to Einstein prior to a Catholic Faith self-help book published in 2004, long after Albert Einstein died in 1955, by Australian author Matthew Kelly – his website is here  – and he doesn’t look like a serious academic who trawled through Einstein’s papers to find this quote that everyone else overlooked.

Politicians will never learn even when they make complete dicks of themselves on Facebook and Twitter. But hey, high prices gurus keep on telling them that this is how you engage…far be it from me to stop them.

Chris Hipkins is certainly no genius, just a gullible fool.

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.
