When is the National Party going to grow some balls and tell Pita Sharples and his racist separatist outfit to bugger off? News from the Beehive-
Maori Affairs Minister Dr Pita Sharples and Minister for Communications and Information Technology Steven Joyce today signed off a framework for maximising opportunities for Maori from the roll-out of high-speed broadband.
“The Terms of Reference set out the roles and responsibilities of the various parties, as they work together to ensure the rollout of high-speed broadband encourages Maori to connect to and use the network, and get maximum economic opportunities from this infrastructure development,” said the Ministers.
“Nga Pu Waea has developed an annual work plan and budget to maximise the ability of Maori to connect to broadband; to make broadband affordable; so Maori are encouraged to use broadband; and so they can get jobs, training and investment opportunities from the rollout project,” said Dr Sharples.
“This is a large and complex construction project, and it is good to have Nga Pu Waea exploring the possibilities for Maori at every step,” said Mr Joyce. “Adding value for Maori gives the whole network greater value to the nation overall, and greater potential to drive a step change in our economic growth.”
What utter worthless garbage, and Joyce should be fired for agreeing to be part of such a blatant exercise in racist propaganda. Broadband is broadband. End of damn story. Whether Maori use it or not is down to them. Same as everybody else.
This is typical of what happens when governments take on projects. Having Joyce and his idiot mates in National build a broadband network would be bad enough anyway, but they have to compound the mistake by making this kind of racist politically correct garbage part of it as well.
What kind of costs does this add to an already over budget project? We’re in the middle of a global financial crisis and we can afford to fool around with this kind of crap??
National are just useless, and I don’t know where they are going to take NZ but it sure as hell isn’t anywhere I want to go. They’re a pack of puke inducing eunuchs for failing to resist this manifestly racist separatist country splitting garbage.
