Daily cronyism

The government has just announced a pile of new SOE board appointments, including appointing Robin Gunston to the board of Airways Corporation. Who?

Robin Gunston is an engineer, currently National Director of Prison Fellowship New Zealand, and previously Head of Safety at the New Zealand Refining Company Ltd.

Unmentioned: he's also the President of United Future NZ, one of National's coalition partners. I guess United Future want to share in the spoils of government too...
