Merv Wellington was Minister of Education under the Muldoon administration. In my opinion – at least until yesterday – Wellington was the worst Minister of Education New Zealand has ever seen. But the current Minister, Anne Tolley, seems to be having more and more “Merv Wellington moments”; where the ideology is more important than the evidence.
I’ve been enjoying Idiot/Savant’s posts over at No Right Turn about his ongoing battles trying to get various Ministers in John Key’s Government to respond adequately to his OIA requests. I’ve had a couple of classics myself this week.
