Racism and Fascism and Thuggery and Auckland Ratepayers Fund It.
Auckland ratepayers will fund a group of unelected bludgers selected purely on the basis of their race and not by any democratic process and these bludgers will have voting rights on 11 of the committees they sit on. The NZ Herald reports-
Auckland ratepayers will pay $1.76 million for the initial funding package for the Maori Statutory Board under a deal agreed behind closed doors. [..] The package includes $984,200 in direct costs to the board, including remuneration of $75,000 for board chairman David Taipari, about $65,000 for deputy chair Patience Te Ao and about $53,000 for board members.
The council has agreed to provide finance and information technology services worth $264,000, two policy advisers and audit services worth $265,000 and one-off accommodation costs of $250,000 to house the board and staff in central Auckland.
Mr Brown said it had not been easy for the council to comply with the legislation that set up the board and resulted in the unelected board members sitting on 11 council committees with voting rights.
What is wrong with the citizens of Auckland that they let these gangsters and thugs get away with this fraud? What a basket case city, what a dirty grubby little mayor and what spineless people for tolerating this racist fascist affront to democracy.
