Words fail me

The government is holding its much-touted "job summit" today, a gathering of New Zealand's richest dead white male businessmen (with a few token women and brown people thrown in) to make it look like the government is "doing something" plot how to offload the cost of the recession onto their employees discuss how to protect (their) jobs (and fat salaries) during the recession. And the "big idea" to come out of this august meeting? "A $50 million cycleway built the length of the country". Seriously.

Have I slipped into the Onion-verse by mistake?
