Two helpings of whatever Paul is on for everybody. This ain't about which party won or lost the election man. That's pathetically childish. The only obvious things about this govt is that they've been hopelessly out of touch with the middle class and the bulk of workers in NZ. You mean success and popularity from Novopay, Kim Dotcom, Pike River, increasing numbers in classrooms....and the subsequent hurried retraction of that lemon, the soaring currency handicapping our exporters, the long awaited and often delayed CHCH rebuild, the ongoing eviction of state housing tenants in times of a housing shortage, adding to the flow of NZers migrating to Oz,(when they said they'd fix that problem), and the record number of unemployed...I'm struggling to see the intelligence of a positive diagnosis from all these failures and the opinion polls are on a downward trend as more and more kiwis realize how bad these buffoons are at running the country. They aren't riding out the world wide depression Paul, they're cashing in on it while they can....I hear they've got some bargain prices going on a few income earning power companies if they can just get them sold before anyone else realizes how unintelligent and shady those deals are...(like the treasury dept dude)? Hope that wasn't too bias for you to handle bud?

PHILIP. Your biased comments self label you as one of the die-hard 'can't admit your party lost the last election brigade' as you have joined with them by continuing to make ongoing negative criticisms of the winning party, regardless of their obvious success and popularity, if only to make yourselves feel better about your loss. Fortunately, as opinion polls prove, most other people demonstrate more intelligence and recognise the positive progression the Key party is achieving while also honest enough to admit National is more astute than other parties to the needs of what must be done to ride out the world wide depression and certainly succeeding to achieve a positive outcome. Only a negative 'head in the sand' opposition 'die-hard' would say otherwise.

Parata - Business Round Table - good God - Education in their hands!!!! It would make no difference if Parata resigned. She would merely be replaced by another new right clone. It suits Teflon John to have Parata in place. He can play the clown/clone on Radio, present himself as Mr Fun Time John and Parata takes the heat. Parata, you are being hung out to dry.
The four Christchurch schools that have been ordered to close and merge as one have had a message of reassurance.
A big protest is expected today as Christchurch's Phillipstown community fights the planned closure of their primary school.
Four Christchurch schools will merge into one 'super-school' under an interim decision announced by Hekia Parata.
Five Christchurch schools will today find out whether they have a future or whether they will be merged.
New research suggests that you're likely to do worse at university if you have an inflated view of what you deserve.
