Shane Jones ain’t no shy wall flower
The public service are full of right wing acolytes who are more focused on building their own Ministry Fiefdoms than provide public services.
Was it ‘politically neutral’ when Public Servants handed over to National Winston’s Superannuation overpayment just before the election?
Was it ‘politically neutral’ when the SIS colluded with Key’s Office to smear Phil Goff?

We have a public service full of right wing neoliberals whom see their job as cutting services to people while maintaining their bureaucratic power bases.
Yes we need to fund our public service more.
Yes we need to employ many more.
Yes those staff need extra perks like longer holidays and more counselling.
But you can’t shovel money into these agencies when they are ideologically opposed to the concept of providing services rather than just lightly managing free market industry.
Shane Jones attack on the bureaucracy as he comprehends the brutal opposition to fundamental change has merit.
Drain the Khandallah swamp will be championed and cheered by every beneficiary who has to suffer under ACC, MSD and Housing NZ.
