The Watchdog

Keeping citizens in the loop

Auckland Mayoral candidate Penny Bright attacks ‘corporate beneficiaries’ NBR post

Where are the jobs? What about ‘CORPORATE WELFARE’?

This is same old – same old ‘Rogernomic$’.

War on the poor.

Where are all the checks on the corporate welfare beneficiaries
– the CONsultants and private CONtractors who have been making a fortune from our public monies for years?

Of course – we have yet to see any ‘cost-benefit’ analysis which proves that the contracting out of public services – the replacement of the ‘beaurocracy’ with the ‘contractocracy’ is more ‘cost-effective’ for the public majority.

Is this because it would prove that the ‘public is bad – private is good’ mantra has just been one gigantic CON job?

What is this National/ACT government doing to provide incentives for corporate welfare beneficiaries to escape from the disease of (corporate) welfarism’?

Penny Bright needs to get a life. Her political views are so well known she sounds like a tired old broken record, with nothing new to say. As for her self appointed fancy titles – who cares??? It doesn’t give her views any more credibility than calling hersef “obsessed self important left wing nutter”.

Are you Lindsay Fergusson – Business Roundtable?

Thanks Lindsay!…

What Can Public Relations
Offer New Zealand Business?

Lindsay Fergusson AUCKLAND

I want to begin by giving you some background on the New Zealand Business Roundtable, of which I am a member.

In the early 1980s a group of business executives met together on a casual basis to discuss common business issues.

The Business Roundtable has grown from this loose group into an incisive think tank, constantly researching and assessing its own business viewpoints. Like us or not, we are contributing in a major and constructive way to the decision making processes and vision of our society.
Our charter commits us to promoting overall New Zealand interests, including a more prosperous economy and a fair society….”

Is this YOU Lindsay?

Lindsay Fergusson – NZ Business Round Table?

If so – that would help explain your rather apoplectic and allergic reaction to what I’m saying about ‘corporate welfare’?

Given that fellow members of the BRT appear to have benefitted so much from it?

Isn’t it because you know that I am right that I appear to have SO jammed your buttons on full?

Your response has made my day! 🙂

I’ll explain again – my description as a ‘Judicially recognised Public Watchdog’ is based on comments made by District Court Judges in my battle for for ‘open, transparent and democratically accountable’ local government.

(21 -1 to me in Court – not for someone who had never been to University – let alone had a day’s formal legal training Lindsay?)

Never mind Lindsay – when I become Mayor of the Auckland $upercity in the protest vote from hell – I will get the best, independent, highest callibre international anti-corruption auditors to go through the ATA and Council contracts/ contractors to identify ‘conflicts of interest’ and corrupt practices in order to help force the repeal of the underpinning legislation.

I guess I’ll REALLY ‘have a life’ then eh Lindsay!

Helping to make ‘corporate welfare beneficiaries’ accountable, after all these years of ripping off the public.

I look forward to your vote ! 🙂

Kind regards
