Enviroschools under threat

In 2007 John Key delivered this friendly message about the National Party’s commitment to the environment to the inaugural Enviroschools Youth Jam in Rotorua:

  1. Great vids, Toad.

    I’ve been amongst a group of younger people for the past 5 years who have been skill-sharing gardening and food-processing to their peers – I know a lot in their 30’s who have few skills in these areas, ‘cos the trip to the supermarket rules; their lives are about the skills they use at work, acquired at uni, disassociated from any natural knowledge.

    In a depression, like the 30’s, NZ survived because people had not lost the skills to grow their own food; whose dimwitted policy directive was this – achieve lower social spending, give tax cuts to the rich & ensure that lenders and monopoly food distributors survive, at the expense of a large chunk of society?

    Get real, donkey, this isn’t a dictatorship, you’ll be rolled as the unemployment compounds.

    No sign of the fancy ‘redundancy relief’ packages from the election trail now, is there?
