Poor widdle Lees-Galloway says Mr Borrows shouldn’t be subjecting officials to “a tirade of verbal abuse” when they’re trying to save lives.
Well, I beg to differ with this idiot, and I commend Chester Borrows for an unusual example of honesty from the National Party.
Borrows told his local paper, the Whanganui Chronicle, about an incident on a farm where an official saw five farm quad bikes in a shed and five helmets hanging on the wall behind each bike.
He said the official issued an infringement notice because the helmets weren’t on the bikes themselves.
“Chester Borrows let rip at what he called `dickhead bureaucrats’ for their unbending enforcement of health and safety regulations,” the Chronicle reported.
It quoted Mr Borrows as saying: “I’m finding people are getting hacked off with stupid rules and enforcement.”
Of course what Borrows conveniently forgets, is that as usual it is National who are responsible for this situation. Prisoners of an all powerful bureaucracy and apparently to dim or wet to do anything about it, they champion this kind of idiocy as they did with their current “Safer Farms” project.
Its your colleague Michael Woodhouse who is behind this garbage Chester. You can read about it here.
