Saying it ain't so, only confirms it.
Damien O'Connor on Jaimie McKay's rural wireless round up denied he was being bitter after he delivered a tirade against alleged serious rundown of infrastructure by the current government with particular reference to The Lewis Pass road. A road now under significant pressure as the main North / South overland route following the devastation of SH1 along the Kaikoura Coast buried along with the main trunk railway.
Cast your feeble mind back Damien, to the wasted years when you enabled the Clark Regime to massively swell the Beaurocracy at the cost of all the bits of productive New Zealand ignored.
Recall if you have sufficient brain cells still functioning how you stood by a leader who called your voters "ferals"' as if that was not harsh enough.
Also you might recall St David Lange who preached from his dung hill how agriculture was a "sunset industry" when it has been revealed that industry world wide has eliminated food poverty and famine almost totally apart from places where socialist meddling has rendered access to the food impossible.
You are a dimwitted socialist remnant from a past long rendered irrelevant so head back to your fiefdom where misguided individuals are being held in "the midst of the stages of grief" as they continue to thwart the only logical next and closing step in the Pikeriver Mine saga, continue to protest sealing the entombed remains that even you must understand will be ashes from the estimated multi thousand degree temperatures from the after math of the disaster over six years ago.
A disaster that seems to be inexplicably never held to be anything to do with the Mine safety manager Rockwell or your current inept Dear Leader who was the head of the Union representing over half the doomed workers before his elevation to "Turtle on a Post".
I am certain your visit to quake devastated Waiau did absolutely zero to move those shattered souls forward, just as the enduring image of the suit clad, shiny shoe wearing posed with a clean shovel PHIL Goff did in an equally non significant contribution to cleaning the Bay of Plenty beach after the Rena hit the Astrolube Reef.
Just crawl back under your rock and cease wasting time and resources trying to find relevance, it is long gorn, passed by by an educated public able to make their own minds up as to the future.
