Mainstream media jump up and down about credit cards but ignores theft of Auckland
You would think that a fringe politician like Rodney Hide with barely 3% of the popular vote would not be able to appoint who he likes to run 75% of Aucklands assets, yet he has. You would think that the National Party flunky stacked Momentum Consultancy who appointed fantasist Steven Wilkes to the Defence department wouldn’t be allowed to appoint people to the Super City, you would think decisions to make computer contracts worth over $50 million dollars none publicly tendered for Auckland would demand some level of outrage, because the sheer corruption of the democratic process we are witnessing with the Super City is staggering.
Corporate directors with over lapping jobs will be eyeing up Aucklands assets to sell off to their well connected mates in the private sector, and it will all be done behind the faintest veil of transparency – yet what do the mainstream media prefer to focus on? Bullshit petty Credit Card expenses, it is more important what dirty movie Shane Jones rented than allowing corporations to gain unfettered access to our assets, it’s more important chasing Chris Carter down stairs over flowers he’d bought his partner than demanding accountability from the Super City, it’s a bigger story that Len Brown took someone to dinner on his credit card than force focus onto Rodney’s annexing of an entire city under a misuse of urgency.
Apparently the bullshit pettiness of Credit Card spending is more important to us all than the outright theft of the largest city in NZ.
