Grand Smarm Turns to Poisoning Young Minds

Unarguably the most profligate wastrel ever to infest the parliamentary precinct has decided to move over to the halls of academe.

Here he is, demonstrating the extent of his achievements as a cabinet minister.

Second only to Winston Peters in the narcism and vanity stakes, Maharey, more than anyone else, personifies the label 'Waste Master General.' Everything he touched soaked up millions if not billions and turned out nothing but second hand oats.

Your comments about the exiting Minister of Education might have even greater impact if you could distinguish between "prescient" (about what?) and "precinct" which from the context is the word you possibly meant. Also, I assume you didn't intend to suggest that Maharey will have a choice in moving over "to the halls or academe", i.e. the conventional phrase is "halls of academe" .... Having got that off my chest, I do agree with your other comments about the Grand Smarm - an entirely appropriate and finely wrought epithet, BTW.

Just continuing his entire adult life of adding NO VALUE and sucking from the public tit. What a complete and utter fucking waste of a life.

As a student at Massey and a former President of one of the student associations, this is the worse thing that the Massey Council has done. We were told that he was not even on the short list a few weeks ago. I find it interesting that this time around, the short-listed candidates were not advised to staff and student executives - no doubt the Council fear the reaction. Quite simply, Maharey’s dream job is going to be Massey’s nightmare.

Based on the criteria that was circulated, he does not even meet the basic tenets that he have a PhD and research background along with some managerial experience. I have an idea that he will prove to be a worse Vice-Chancellor than the present incumbent. I’m glad I don’t have to deal with him next year.

As others have mentioned, I remained bemused that Massey has provided a safe harbour for a smarmy rat leaving Labour’s sinking ship.

Massey is not a real University. At best it is a Polytechnic. At worst it is a finishing school for farm-boys.

Now Smarmy has been employed I say anyone serious about education should boycott the facility and go to a real University.

Sure, agriculture and biotech is just trades material - any thicko can do it with a bit of an apprenticeship. In any case, the last thing NZ needs is research benefiting its primary field of economic endeavour, when there's the far more important task of turning out all those lawyers and accountants at "real" universities.

Seriously, I hope you were just taking the piss.

CK is right .. as usual.
Palmerston North is like wellington without the view. A shit hole.
The "uni" is just the place inbred ginga farmers send their inbred ginga children to find an inbred ginga mate to take back to the farm.

Steve "Mr Fuck" Maharey. Another useless Liarbour appendage. He won't be missed.
