Labour’s Annette King asked the wrong question in Parliament today.
She inquired of Paula Bennett, our Minister for Social Development and Employment: Why did she appoint Christine Rankin as a Families Commissioner?
The much better question is why appoint anyone to be Families Commissioners and why not just dismantle the bloody outfit?
For the record, Bennett said she appointed Rankin:
Because I believe she will be good in the role, and she is a strong advocate for children and their families.
