And more cronyism

Charles Finny works for Saunders Unsworth, the National Party's pet lobbyists. He was in the news a couple of months ago after it was discovered that his mate Murray McCully had given him $54,000 for an untendered research contract. And now, thanks to Steven Joyce, he's been appointed chair of Education New Zealand.

Again, I'll be scrutinising this appointment to see if it followed the proper process. But from here, it looks like yet another crony appointment, National using public money to help out its mates.
