$1.5billion to bail out South Island Mr Magoo
Deadline looms on $1.5b collapse bill
Taxpayers are facing a bill for $1.55 billion unless South Canterbury Finance can be pulled from the brink of failure before tomorrow night.
How much? $1.5billion to bail out this funny old South Island Mr Magoo charctature who stands for all that is good and decent in the Mainland??? That's a fuck of a lot of cash to prop up a South Island self imagined myth. This bloke who is the richest man who drives around in a tiny car in a modest home whose name is as good as his word and doesn't need to bother with all that silly paper work is going to cost us all how much??? $1.5 fucking billion?
Jesus wept, look Hubbard seems like a decent bloke and many nice South Islanders seem to have tied their own sense of identity into his 'uncomplicated' ways, but $1.5billion is $1.5 fucking billion, Oprah Winfrey's self esteem Network costs less than that! Let's just start beaming her satellite TV station directly into the South Island for free to avoid this escapade again shall we?
In the wake of this implosion, can someone please have a bit of a sniff around and work out how this bloody 'I-keep-all-the-numbers-in-my-head' nonsense was allowed to build with such bubble and burst intensity?
