New documents confirm coronavirus Case L, who went to work at an Auckland KFC before testing positive three days later, wasn’t contacted directly by health officials until after the shift.
The first lesson any Minister needs to understand before they take up the job is that their officials will lie through their teeth to you.
That’s what happened with the KFC coms fiasco, Jacinda was assured the contact had been made, it hadn’t.
Talking with Minister’s you have example after example after example of butt covering by Ministry’s who tell you what you want to hear.
The colossal cock up inside Corrections that allowed for riot conditions to explode at the beginning of the year is a classic example.
The great Unionist Robert Reid said it best…
…Labour won by accident in 2017 and Covid overshadowed 2020 so none of them have any real reform platform for the Public Service which allows the neoliberal public service to call the shots.
The ideological right wing acolytes who have taken up residence in our public service, must be cut from the body public as one cuts out a tumour. These spiteful people have spread their hateful right wing beliefs and infected every inch of what should be a welfare system designed to protect and help rather than punish and torture.
We have seen example after example after example of how these ‘servants’ damage and kill the poor they are supposed to serve. Hounding a beneficiary into suicide for a debt that never existed is an abomination.
Our civil service has become uncivil.
Our Public Services are supposed to be the bastions of egalitarianism which are essential for a progressive liberal democracy progressing. Instead, spiteful zealots mutate it into the cruelest of torture devices used by the State to keep the poor too terrified to fight back.
Just like Oranga Tamariki stealing babies, Housing NZ evicting tenants, Motels housing the homeless, Corrections miscalculating Prisoner sentences and sparking prison riots– all of them don’t care about the actual welfare of the people they are supposed to care about.
Add mental health to the longest of crises we are now suffering thanks to the Wellington Bureaucratic elite…
