What's good for the goose isn't good for the Cabinet Minister

Well, well, well, what do we have here - while the Government are happy for us plebs to send our children to over crowded school rooms, they won't be sending theirs...

Ministers' kids skip big classes
Nearly half of the Government's Cabinet ministers send or have sent their children to elite schools which are unlikely to feel the effects of changes to classroom sizes.

A Herald survey of ministers found that at least seven of the sixteen Cabinet ministers with school-aged children sent all or some of their children to private schools. Four ministers refused to say where their children attended or could not respond, and five ministers said they had enrolled their kids in state schools.

...so they benefit most from their tax cuts and they don't have to feel the impact of cost cutting education? When are the sleepy hobbits of NZ going to realize they've elected a feudal elite who have a 'let them eat cake while they teach in over crowded class rooms' mentality.

I love how the Government think announcing that schools will only lose 2 teachers each is a great come back!

This is a Government for the rich, by the rich, in the interests of the rich.

If you're not angry yet at this Government, you haven't been paying attention.

This Government is a clone Government of virtually every other NZ Government since the 1910's . This Government will change nothing because it's a status quo they and their mates know and love . It's served them and their friends well , made them billions and unfortunately they're not going anywhere any time soon . But they will go eventually and they'll go with a big , big bang . Commission of inquiry please ? Ask , " where's our money ? " Then , " Call the police ! " roger douglas ? Your cold , black heart skipped a beat yet ?
