What on earth are they doing?
The head of the organisation representing Taranaki secondary school principals says educators felt the co-leaders of the Green Party had listened to them in New Plymouth.
Martin Chamberlain, principal of Francis Douglas Memorial College and the head of the Taranaki Secondary Schools Principals’ Association, was speaking after the meeting with James Shaw and Marama Davidson at the Plymouth Hotel on Wednesday afternoon.
The pair were in Taranaki on a two-day visit in which they are calling in at schools around the mountain – but not the controversial Green School at Oakura.
Last month, Shaw announced $11.7 million had been approved for the private school’s expansion plans.
Why are they visiting the Schools who missed out on extra spending in Taranaki and dragging this fiasco into a 3rd week of news?
You are extending the media platform to remind everyone of a huge blunder just before the election?
Why didn’t you cauterise this the next day with some bullshit Zoom conference with the aggrieved so that it was done and dusted?
How the Christ are we now into the third week of this fucking Jedi Academy as a news story?
Who the hell is running things inside there?
It’s like watching Chequers players playing Chess.
Please Green Party Strategists, tell me that’s it. There isn’t some major conference 24 hours out from the election where Marama and James have to self flagellate themselves in front of the Taranaki Secondary Schools Principals’ Association who have felt triggered by the Jedi Academy is there?
Can we get this story out of the fucking news cycle and stop manufacturing reasons the media might want to pull it back into the headlines?
Like organised meetings with them?
I don’t even know what to say anymore.
Chloe Swarbrick in Auckland Central is rapidly becoming their only hope now.
