Our Brave Leader is really laying it on thick as the ABC reports on a fight between Jon Stanhope and the P&C association.
The P&C’s want to “Live in Canberra” promotional materials to reflect the 2020 school closure program. The Chief Minister says that would be premature until the “consultation” is finished.
As anyone who has wasted hours of their lives going to the “consultation” meetings knows, it’s a pretty worthless process.
But more importantly the Chief Minister must know as well as anyone that
every nearly every school earmarked for closure in the plan is finished. No parent is going to enroll their child in a school they know is going to be shutting down before the child finishes. If Jon Stanhope wanted to have a consultation process he could hide behind, he shouldn’t have pre-empted it with 2020.
