‘Get the violin out for someone else. You’re a right-wing politician, start acting like one!’

Last month, a student threatened another student with a knife at a Central Coast high school.

A boy at the school captured the incident on his iPhone and provided the footage to the school principal, Shayne Player.

That boy was then inexplicably suspended.

Ray Hadley has slammed Ms Player, telling NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes “this person that you employ needs to be counselled about her behaviours”.

It’s not the principal’s first strike either after lecturing female students for wearing shorts, saying “it’s not fair to the male teachers”.

The Education Minister tried to stand up for Ms Player, saying “there’s more to that story”.

“No suspension was taken on the basis of providing footage.”

Ray informs the Minister that simply isn’t true, “No action was taken against this kid until he offered the video. It was used as a wedge to get the kid out of the school.

“Anyone saying anything different, I’ll tell you Rob, is a liar.

“The mother was very open… telling me the boy’s no angel.”

Despite Ms Player’s repeated indiscretions, Mr Stokes insists he has “confidence in the principal”.

“I think she’s got a tough job.”

But Ray isn’t having it.

“Get the violin out for someone else. You’re a right-wing politician, start acting like one!

“Stop kowtowing to the union and people of the left because it brings you no credit.”
