Barry Matthews really is a complete tit

Further to my previous post on the awesome boss of the Corrections Department, I noticed that Whale Oil pointed out that Barry was also responsible for the absolutely awesome INCIS Police computer system (that’s so awesome it has it’s own page on wikipedia) that cost the taxpayer $110,000,000 (yes, that’s 110 million dollars), and was finally ditched without being implemented.


Typically, the subsequent enquiry didn’t find anyone particular responsible for pissing this money away.

Clearly Mr Matthews feels if he got away with blowing $110,000,000 that a few deaths by unsupervised criminals was pretty minor. I guess this kind of shows the strange little universe Mr Matthews occupies.

It also hows how for the last few terms of government how ingrained the ‘take no responsiblity’ culture has become in the civil service. That along with growing incidents of corruption should really seriously worry tax payers… a corrupt irresponsible civil service would be a disaster for NZ.
