Little Morrie Iemma must be a constant shame to his mother.
His constant ducks and drakes approach to the truth would worry any parent.
It certainly worries NSW voters if the latest Newspoll survey, showing a 56% dissatisfaction rate for the Premier, is any indication.
Here is his latest.
"PREMIER Morris Iemma's office gave written assurances via email to unions three weeks before the 2007 election that it had no intention of privatising the power industry and that it would remain in public hands.
The unions have now released the correspondence to accuse Mr Iemma of lying to workers - and voters - who had no idea the power sell-off was on the agenda ahead of polling day. With only one in eight delegates expected to back the power sale at this weekend's ALP state conference, the emergence of Mr Iemma's post-election switch will further damage his standing. An email from Mr Iemma's senior staff to a key power union in March last year categorically rejected any plans for the Government to privatise the electricity sector, claiming it would remain a "key service" of government."
Meanwhile up in the top paddock.....
According to ABC News yesterday the Commonwealth Public Service Union thinks that "Mr Rudd is sending a clear message that he wants to return to a Westminster system in which public servants tell the Government what it needs to know, rather than what it wants to hear.
"Through a range of means it was made clear throughout the period of the Howard years and with some ministers in particular, not all of them, that it wasn't a career move to give certain sorts of advice on matters that didn't align with the Government's particular philosophy or view," he said."
But is that really what the Prime Minister is saying in his Address to Heads of Agencies and Members of Senior Executive Service in Canberra yesterday.
In a quiet way Kevin Rudd is signalling that tenure remains uncertain for senior levels in the public service.
