Not so entertaining this time - partly because there were only 39 people present and aside from an introduction from Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga the National MP for Maungakiekie who organised the meeting, only two members of Charter School working party, Catherine Issac and Margaret Southwick were allowed to speak. This meant it was up to the audience to point out the omissions and falsehoods - as usual there were more than could be addressed in one meeting.
Isaac kicked off, noting that charter schools were nothing to do with the ACT Party. If the lack of reaction allowed her to imagine that the audience was buying that particular piece of spin she would be dead wrong.
