Damsel in distress or dunce in denial?



The lady pictured here needs our help.


This I know to be true from this
billboard I saw yesterday beside Parrs Cross Road in Oratia
There upon it was Lynne's wee face, all earnest and concerned, and below that was the plea
"Save Our Trees" and "Trees Need Protection Now", followed by a summons to a public meeting.

It was immediately obvious to me that the trees on the property that Lynne lives on, with whoever, are under some kind of threat and she's trying to recruit locals to help her, and whoever, keep them from harm.

Surely that must be the case. If not, what trees can she be concerned for?

Not the trees in the local parks and reserves? Surely they are the responsibility of the Waitakere Eco- City Council, and thus in very good hands.
Could it be? No, surely not.. It can't be true...... but it looks like Lynne's labour party sense of socialist collectivism could be raisng its head here and she's talking about trees on my and my neighbours properties.
Sad but true I fear.


Here's a challenge:

The photo below
was taken from our front deck in West Auckland and I'll wager a bottle of rough red that at least 99.9 of the trees in it will still be there on October 2nd 2009, 2010, and in five years time there'll probably be even more trees in the frame.

Dear L
ynne, you really need to learn, along with the rest of the leftys, that the constant scaremongering, and the desire to interfere in everybody's business, is what what saw you and your party change sides in the big house.

Also if the trees in Auckland are only going to remain standing as a result of legislation then don't trees in other cities also require similar laws to protect them. I trust that very soon you'll be bringing a private members bill to protect trees in Wellington, Waitomo, and Te Awamutu etc from their owners?


Hand wringer.

I htink it was Ogden Nash who said:

"I think that I will never see
A billboard lovely as a tree
In fact unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all."

Have you noticed that Labour keep their signs up for ages after the meetings have happened? Also, that's MMP for us, Lynne Pillay would not be be in the House if we had a better system, the Waitakere electorate said no, but she does have a lovely face.

Heh......Cunliff has the same thing going on in ash street just before the great north road intersection....
My car manages to always end up next to it while I wait for the lights.....I see it every day......one day soon I'll have to do something about it as it really makes my blood boil

Yes, that's Cunliffe's office, well hidden isn't it? He never takes the signs down in a timely manner, I guess its cheap advertising. Labour - the new Greens?

Please don't give this interfering busybody even more ammo, Grant!

The more Labour say "we're going to reverse this law," the more they will encourage the chainsaws -- after all, if you've only got a three-year window of opportunity before council takes over ownership of your tress again, what will you be doing?
