Peter Dunne is a kind of mixed bag guy who like Winston never seems to see a constantly clear picture. He gets it wrong so many times, but here’s one of the times he’s got it right. UF press release-
UnitedFuture leader Peter Dunne is querying five new staff positions recently advertised by the Parliamentary Service.
The Parliamentary Service is currently advertising for:
– An Organisational Development Manager to join the People and Culture Leadership team
– A Senior Organisational Development Advisor
– A Senior Learning and Development Advisor to build people and organisational capability
– A Talent Manager for the People and Culture Leadership team
– A People and Culture Services Manager.
“These all sound like bureaucratic gobbledegook to me.
“Parliamentary Services is charged with running the Parliamentary complex, and ensuring MPs get the services they need to operate effectively – no more, no less.
“How any of these positions contribute to that objective is a mystery to me.
“It just looks like more Parliamentary Service feather-bedding, and I cannot see how any of these positions will lead in any way to better assisting MPs serve the public who elected them,” he says.
Mr Dunne says he is more than a little surprised that the Taxpayers Union “that seems it knows everything about government expenditure” has not been critical of these proposed new appointments.
Well, he didn’t need the little dig at the Taxpayer’s Union who do a fine job with limited resources, but basically I think he’s spot on. Is this another sign that the National govt is run out of the People’s Republic of China?
Good too to see Dunne is not afraid to stick it to the Nats. Emboldened by Winston’s win in Northland do you think? Pity ACT didn’t take a leaf from his book. The Nats are doing so much that must be contrary to what ACT claims to believe in but they’re quiet as mice.
