    Not a lot of opportunity to comment these days on Yahoo! I notice that it has decided to be especially "spinful" of the Nasty Nat Party. "Joyce gets to grips with Novopay" (If saying "but he isn't promising a quick fix" is getting to grips then we need a new definition of "getting to grips". Followed by "Joyce promises effective teacher pay system" - but he doesn't say WHEN! The headlines could have been written by the Nasty Nat Head Office itself! And then we get the gratuitous "Labour still lagging behind with ideas: from Puller Bennett who has lead the charge to dismantle the training systems that Labour put in place in the early 2000s and who is presiding over the largest number of unemployed for many many years! Who is it that has run out of ideas? Does Puller write her own headlines for Yahoo?
