Quotation for Today, Friday 20 February

20/02/2009

National can afford to talk big about the buck stopping somewhere because it is still dealing with leftovers from the previous Government – the Auditor-General’s report on Corrections being a prime example.

In a year or so, Corrections’ problems will be Collins’ problem. She is determined to build a “culture of excellence”. But if Rome was not built in a day, neither will Corrections be transformed overnight. Prisoners will still escape, inmates will still be breaking the rules and so forth.

Who is accountable then? Collins is setting high standards – ones she, too, will have to keep meeting.

John Armstrong writing in the NZ Herald of Wednesday, February 18.
