Give us back our money or get back to work

Via the tipline ? that shabby bunch of socialists, the NZPF, aided and abetted by Labour?s NZEI buddies, will be protesting at Ministry of Education offices against National Standards on Friday. These losers just don?t know when to leave the party. You have lost ? now move on.

Anyway, I can reveal that principals negotiated a cosy agreement in recent pay rounds. Each one gets an extra $2000 on top of their not inconsiderable salaries to implement the Government?s literacy and numeracy programmes ? e.g. National Standards. This amounts to $6 million dollars a year. So my question is ? will these tossers be returning this payment as part of the protest? I can guess the answer to that. Will Perry Rush be dropping off a cheque to the Ministry for his $2000? Not likely.

I do wonder though who is in charge of their schools while they are protesting? Are they still getting paid while deserting their posts?

What a luxury for these civil servants to take time off and pick and choose what they want to do – while one in five kids is failing at school.

My spies tell me Anne Tolley is biding her time, but that the money tap is about to be turned off and the troops sent in to sort these guys out.

I can?t wait.

It is high time that our politicians took a leaf out of the playbooks of Scott Walker and Chris Christie and sorted our the state sector unions including the uppity teachers.
