Phil Goff on Early Childhood intervention

Phil Goff said this morning about their?children’s?policy that Labour wants intervention before the child is even born….now correct me if I am mistaken but I though?intervention?before a child was born was likely to ensure it was never born.

Have a listen…see if you can work it out.

Goff on Child care by whaleoil

Honestly, I sat there today listening to this fool and he just talks in sound bites and strap lines, none of which flow together. The more you listen to him the less sense he makes.

Moroney abandons ECE workers

Labour and NZEI – joined at the hip, as my recent email expose showed – are doing all they can to make ECE an election issue.

They want you and me to pay an extra half a billion a year into this sector – on top of the $1.4 billion a year which the taxpayer already stumps up.

Certainly, kindergarten associations can never have enough money. As I revealed, these “charities” have at least $60 million in the bank gathering interest.

But if ECE is such a big deal to Labour, then where was Sue Moroney on Friday?

Goff’s education spokesperson (his fifth since the election) had promised to take part in a political panel debate at a childcare conference in Rotorua.

But the hundreds of ECE workers at the conference were left in the lurch. Moroney just didn’t bother turning up. No apology, no explanation.

Maybe she was too busy helping NZEI and kindy associations count their money. Or maybe she was scared the workers would ask how their names and emails had found their way onto Labour’s database.

Or maybe she was worried someone would ask how Labour would fund the extra half a billion a year they have promised this sector.

Whatever the reason, Labour just waved goodbye to yet more votes.
