The Public Service Association through its left wing stooge spokesman and National Secretary Richard Wagstaff is whining again about government job losses. When are they going to get the message that New Zealand is running on a Volkswagon budget right now and can’t afford the luxury of a Rolls Royce bureaucracy? Wagstaff claims 44 jobs are to be cut from NIWA. Well hell, ain’t that a shame.
This is a department that has been thoroughly politicised by promoting self serving scare mongering propaganda on global warming. Stuff that could not stand scrutiny by independent observers.
I’d shut the whole Department down for gross dereliction of duty. We need an independent public service and not one that promotes scare mongering and propaganda aimed at enhancing its own role. NIWA played a big part in pushing the climate change myth, and as a result we now have the idiotic and economically damaging Carbon Trading scheme hanging around our necks like a damn millstone.
NIWA damaged our prosperity and now they’re paying the price. You reap what you sow Mr. Wagstaff.
