Put it on the list

Re: "Student tablet project hit as suppliers falter", National, February 6.

This is just another item on the list of failures for vote-catching, corruption-riddled, populist policies. When will the government produce its 2012 summary, now several months overdue? What was the reason for not producing it: incompetence, poor bookkeeping or to keep voters in the dark? It should be mandatory to produce it before any new election, even if it's as wafer-thin as the 2011 report, the delivery of which led to some of the truth on the rice pledging. It should only take a few days.
