"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Amalgamation: more corruption, less accountability and transparency

Georgina Beyer introduced the idea of amalgamation of the Wairarapa Councils.  Beyer the Liar has no credibility whatsoever following her involvement in the cover up of the fraud and gross mismangement at the former Carterton Community Centre, and Beyer's subsequent resignation as a Member of Parliament.  The people promoting this idea are doing so for their own purposes, and in order to keep their own snouts in the trough, and keep as many others out as possible in order to increase their own portion.  Local Councils can co-operate and share resources if they so desire, but they have failed to demonstrate much inclination to do so at all.  The answer to the Wairarapa's problems is not amalgamation, it lies in electing competent and honourable people to govern, not transvestite prostitutes and drunken bikers.  We need intelligent, visionary people.  Why follow like sheep just because Beyer the Liar tells anyone who is silly enough to listen that amalgamation is 'inevitable'?  It's time to think for ourselves, not blindly follow corrupt and incompetent idiots.  The link above provides a bit of balance to the discussion, unfortunately I have to prepare for Court proceedings and lack the time or access to resources to expound my own views further at the moment, but intelligent people will be able to work it out for themselves if they have a good look through the sites referred to.
