BREAKING NEWS: 'Jobs for the Boys' becomes Government policy
Secret briefing papers to Steven Joyce show the govt's 100,000 promised new jobs will largely go to rich white men. Key has been boasting these 100 000 jobs as his commitment to employment, but when the majority of them are going to people like him it has the whiff of venal self interest gone septic.
I can see why the briefings were secret, jobs for the boys as actual state policy is about as alienating as Paul Henry on Australian Breakfast television.
Beyond the jokes however is an angry question, if the tax cuts have benefitted the rich and wealthy, if the asset sales will benefit the rich and wealthy and now employment policy is benefitting the rich and wealthy - what the bloody hell does this Government do for the remaining majority?
The answer seems to be farcical 10 point plans to no where.
