These Labour Muppets couldn’t organise a root in a brothel

Willie Jackson, the Labour Party list candidate and the party’s Māori campaign manager, is at odds with Labour’s policy strongly opposing charter schools.

One of Labour’s core policies is to repeal the legislation under which charter schools currently operate.

Ah, but there may be a solution!  

Labour leader Andrew Little said if charter schools could show they had registered teachers and were teaching the national curriculum, they could stay open as special character schools.

Quipped one wit

Mr Jackson also questioned why any charter school should be closed under a Labour government.

“I think just about all the schools are doing well, there’s been one or two hiccups, but there would be no reason, from my observation, to close any schools.

It’s great that their number 21 list candidate is campaigning against Labour party policy.  And here’s the weird thing, Jackson is the sensible one.

But that was not viewed as a conflict to party policy by Mr Little.

“No I don’t think so, he’s expressed his view, but the Labour Party policy is the Labour Party policy – that’s what we’ll take to the election and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Willie should know that union dogma outweighs real-world results.
