North Shore Mayor isn't the problem - the bloody Auckland SuperCity is!
I'm not going - defiant mayor digs in
A defiant North Shore Mayor, Andrew Williams, has denied he has a drinking problem and says he will not resign after allegedly urinating in public and driving home after drinking at a local restaurant. Speaking exclusively to the Herald yesterday, Mr Williams said he did drink alcohol, but he did not drink excessively. "I'm like any other normal Kiwi male. I'm very mindful of being reasonable."
I don't care what tree this Mayor pisses on. I do however care about Auckland being annexed by Rodney Hide and Steven Joyce by a misuse of urgency. I do care that those two are the ones appointing people to our city, I do care that booze barons get to run our city...
Booze peddler to spin democracy down the toilet
Would you believe it? We now have a guy who peddles alcohol to the youth market in charge of the new Super City. If this doesn't get your alarm bells going, nothing will.
...I do care that the Orwellian double-speak named 'Council-Controlled Organizations' which are anything but and that they will spend 75% of Auckland's budget all done behind secret meetings with no minutes or agendas published and I do care about the gerrymandering of National rump electorates like Rodney who will get more representation than someone actually living in Auckland Central being included in the Super City.
I care about all of those things, I don't care about the tree the Mayor pisses on. Allowing ourselves to be smoke screened by none issue like this allow National and ACT to win.
Auckland - your city is being robbed from you by Wellington so Hide and Joyce can appoint an unelected corporate cabal to sell the city off, don't let a story about where the North Shore Mayor urinates take your attention of this theft.
