Mr Barr takes a holiday

By Thumper - 8 August 2006 10

Local website IBN News, which has only just started reporting, has this article about Mr Barr going on holidays.

Shadow Minister Vicki Dunn reckons it is ‘a bit ordinary’

I reckon the bloke probably deserves some time off given the way he’s had to defend his valiant leaders statements and apparent backflips and as such Vicki Dunne’s comments seem a tad harsh.

IBN article here, well, half way down the page:

What’s Your opinion?

It’s becoming apparent that someone needs to shaft Barr’s boss and bring some common sense and sense of reality back to the job and yes I’ll be at the next meeting of out local school group later this week and I’ll pass on the news that dear Andrew has taken some time off.

meh. whats the worse that could happen, a school closes prematurely while he is away ?

Nice timing though, go on hol’s just as your “boss” shafts you…

I certainly hope you can’t move leave from Government service to Government office.

The two are supposed to be fundamentally distinct.

Elected representatives can’t use accrued leave from a previous job – after 4 months though he’d have more than a week of leave

Is he going to San Francisco? I hope he wears a flower in his hair….

Ha Ha,

I just re-read the article and was focuesd on this.

“I suspect that the parents who are spending their evenings after work and chores, writing submissions to save their schools will not be pleased to know that the author of their problems has time to take leave after only four months in the job.”

That is one of the wonders of working in the circus – You can move your leave credits between jobs. He may have 6 months of accrued leave that he can take. Heavens to betsys, he may even take “Long Service Leave”

Cool, isn’t it.

there comes a time when the mobile gets turned off, and the job can get stuffed.

Have a great beak. It is a time for reflection.

Care Factor. The bloke has a job, put an application in to go on holidays, it was approved by the powers that be.

have great and relaxing holiday mate.

I’d love to know if this holiday was planned before Jon Stanhope reversed Andrew’s position on selling the school grounds to developers.
