Gotta say it’s damned disappointing to see Jackie Blue – splendid lady – taking up what looks like a hand-wringingly dreary job as Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner.
Justice Minister Judith Collins announced the appointment (here) today.
Trouble is, Jackie’s appointment requires her resignation as an MP. She will take up her new job on 4 June.
This opens absolutely new opportunity for Alf’s promotion, as the appointment of Tim Groser to head the World Trade Organisation would do.
Second, if we had no Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner, we could save a bundle of money without in any way harming our society.
